Festival of lights – Gilroy Garden

In August, following some friends posts we decided to visit the Gilroy Gardens. This is a Theme Park, but the rides seem for younger kids, than our family, so only went at night for the Lumination 2016. This a magnificent festival of lights, in the Chinese tradition. It is similar to La Magie des lanternes, at the Jardin Botanique in Montreal.

Starting at the entrance, you are swept away, with Chinese inspiration.

The kids enjoyed running amongst the water fountains, and taking poses in the shadows. There they are dabbing. Their new favorite pose.

It’s hard to see here in the picture, but the white lights were like rain drop, it was beautiful, in the dark, but also in the light.

I hope this can give you an idea of the magical lights we have seen here, and we can make you want to go and visit.
