Last night, my family and I were invited to attend the Blossoms of Light at the Denver Botanic Garden and to be VIP guests for the flipping of the switch! FOX31 was there and aired it live.
You can see two and a half of us in the video. Mallory was terrified of being on television. I think what she's really afraid of is that she'll be discovered and turned into another Honey Boo Boo.
Blossoms of Light is really beautiful! They gave us HoloSpex glasses to wear that turn the million lights into amazing snowflakes, reindeer or snowmen. I actually preferred to see the lights without the glasses.
Keith and I even got a rare picture together!
You should also be aware that there are a few places to purchase hot chocolate and cider and at a certain place on Friday nights, you can have a little something added to make it into an adult beverage. You can also purchase a bag of roasted nuts. I passed on this lovely snack because I didn't want to draw the attention of Denver's squirrel population. I have learned my lesson!
If you live south of Denver, you can view the Trails of Lights at Chatfield, located at C-470 and Wadsworth.
