Thursday workers could be seen setting up for the annual Gardens Aglow event.

Every Friday between Thanksgiving and Christmas the gardens will be lit up with Christmas lights and decorations for all to enjoy.

The self-guided walking tour takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, and is $8 a person with children 8 and under getting in for free.

And according to the Gardens, there will be some new surprises this year.

“This year we’ve got a lot more displays than we’ve had in the years past. We’ve got another half dozen or so animated displays out here this year that we didn’t have last year,” said Larry Dykes co-chair of Gardens Aglow.

Gardens Aglow will also take place the Friday after Christmas to give everyone a little extra time to get out and enjoy the lights.
