The Holiday Season Officially Kicks Off Today at Moody Gardens
Holiday in the Gardens Features Safe and Festive Family Fun.
Today Moody Gardens opens Holiday in the Gardens with a variety of attractions throughout the day, and the shining star – Festival of Lights starts at 6pm-10pm. For the benefit of guests and staff, a comprehensive Health and Safety Program is in place along with the Pyramid Promise which states the experience will be Clean, Safe and Fun. A mask requirement will be enforced while on property along with other protocols, and the outdoor setting offers plenty of room to social distance while exploring the Gardens. Families that have made it a tradition over the years to visit the Festival of Lights can do so this year with confidence that their safety is being made top priority.
