The Holiday Season Officially Kicks Off Today at Moody Gardens

Holiday in the Gardens Features Safe and Festive Family Fun.

Last Updated: November 21, 2020 by Moody Gardens | Nature, Events


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.

Guests can explore the one-mile walking trail decked with two million lights and filled with sound enhanced lighted and animated displays themed to everyone’s favorite holiday music. Festival of Lights will be open Nov. 21 through Jan. 2, including Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Popular displays include the Nutcrackers, a toy factory, 12 Days of Christmas display, a narrated nativity scene, and Star: The Dancing Tree of Light – a four-story digital Christmas tree.

In addition to the Festival of Lights, some of the other holiday attractions include Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer playing in the 4D Theater, other holiday 3D films, the Arctic Slide and train rides, fireside s’mores, evening cruises aboard the Colonel Paddlewheel Boat and plenty of dining and hotel options, including Breakfast with Santa.

Guests looking for bargains and fewer visitors can take advantage of Value Days every Sunday – Thursday between Nov. 29 – Dec. 17. The best deal is a Holiday Pass which includes admission to the Festival of Lights, a 3D and 4D movie and the Arctic Slide, for only $20 on a Value Day and $30 regularly. Festival of Lights and other holiday attractions open at 6 p.m. nightly and close at 10 p.m. on Value Days and 9 p.m. regularly. Moody Gardens’ regular attractions open at 10 a.m. daily.

“We know that cleanliness and safety is at the top of everyone’s concerns this year so we are taking all of the necessary precautions in order for our guests to relax and have a safe and enjoyable experience,” said Moody Gardens President and CEO John Zendt.
