Orlando’s 50-acre Harry P. Leu Gardens will transform once again into a stunning, winter wonderland featuring a million dazzling lights, shining forests, magical displays, music and beautiful sculptures during “Dazzling Nights” – a family-friendly adventure that gives guests the opportunity to embark on an unforgettable, three-quarter mile, interactive holiday experience.
Created by the team who brings the IMMERSE Festival to Downtown Orlando every October and presented by AdventHealth, Dazzling Nights is an awe-inspiring, annual holiday event.
A few snapshots of the all-new, totally redesigned 2021 adventure include:
- A forest lit with the flickering of hundreds of hand-made Moroccan lanterns
- A 7,000 square foot light maze
- The Leu Gardens Rose Garden comes to life with 150 colored balls of light
- A forest of neon trees
- A 65’ long tunnel of 12’ tall stars
- The finale of snow returns, but this time enhanced by two giant light trees
- Brand new entertainment and food offerings
This year, guests can also enjoy a great holiday dinner and treats as well, including:
- A holiday feast of turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans and gravy layered in a cup
- Turkey, stuffing and cranberry sandwich
- Warm minestrone soup in a bread bowl
- And more!
Dazzling Nights is purposefully designed with our healthcare partner AdventHealth to be inclusive, accessible and safe. There will also be a sensory-friendly option with adjusted lighting and sound. This is the first sensory-friendly holiday lighted experience of its kind in Central Florida. Date and time details will be posted on the event website.
The outdoor event is designed to ensure adequate social distancing and safety amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It’s time again to be immersed in the wonder of the holidays,” said Creative City Project Executive Director Cole NeSmith. “We are thrilled to bring back our sold-out, holiday experience of last year with an all-new, completely redesigned show and keep this annual tradition fresh. Amidst the continuing challenging climate, Dazzling Nights is truly the perfect, safe, ‘must-do’ holiday tradition for the whole family.”
“This year has been incredibly difficult for our community, which makes gathering with friends and family to experience joy and feel whole together more important than ever,” says Sharon Line Clary, Vice President of Strategic Marketing & Communications for AdventHealth. “We are thrilled to help bring this incredibly special experience to Central Florida for the second year.”
Dazzling Nights recently announced its expansion to Jacksonville, Florida at Jacksonville Arboretum & Botanical Gardens also being held November 19 – January 9.
