This year we decided to kick off the Christmas season with a walk through the Gardens. The "official" opening for car traffic was Thanksgiving, but four days prior to the opening that you could walk the path, it was called the Million Bulb Walk.
The advantage of walking was the ability to linger without worrying about holding up traffic behind us. I could stay at one spot for as long as I wanted trying to get that perfect shot. The disadvantage, it was COLD, so not a lot of lingering was done, especially on our way back to the car. The cold added to the festive atmosphere, and if I was to chose which I enjoyed more, the tour on foot would win hands down. I enjoyed getting close to the lights and watching children and families reactions as they walked through the displays
Here is a small sampling of some of the lights we saw that night. Hope you enjoy. Does your town/city do anything like this?
