Holiday Lights are back at Garvan Woodland Gardens, and 2022’s version is the best yet! 20 acres of the Gardens come alive each night with over 5 million lights incorporated into animation, topiaries, music, and family fun. Some of our favorite displays are the new under-the-sea aquarium, “ice dandelions” blowing in the wind, Rodrick the Sea Serpent, and the frog pond. “James the Train,” a fully animated life-sized train engine is a traditional favorite.
The Garden of the Pine Wind is once again adorned in ethereal blue and white lights; the 50-foot tall Rose Tree comes alive with a 12-minute music and lights show; and watch as elves fill Santa’s sleigh with gifts! The Chipmunk Cafe will even be open for food and beverages.
You can visit Garvan Gardens every night through New Year’s Eve (closed Thanksgiving and Christmas days). Gates open at 4pm, and tickets MUST be purchased in advance this year. No tickets will be sold at the gardens in 2022. If you’re staying with us on a weekend, you can expect large crowds. Admission fees are $20 per adult and must be purchased in advance. For those unable to walk long distances, golf cart rides are available for an additional $20 per person, first come first served.

Our Holiday Lights Special includes 2 nights in the room of your choice, breakfast at Tiffany’s each morning, and tickets to spend an evening strolling through the winter wonderland of Holiday Lights.
Garvan Gardens isn’t the only place to see holiday lights in Hot Springs. Historic Bathhouse Row in Hot Springs National Park has light displays in Arlington Park as well as Wheatley Plaza, and be sure to visit the Arlington Hotel’s Gingerbread House. This 11-foot tall confectionery creation has adorned the hotel’s lobby each holiday season for nearly 40 years! Another fun light display can be found at Mid-America Science Museum’s Dino-Lites. Visit the museum on Fridays and Saturdays from 5-7pm to view 18 decorated dinosaurs on the Dino-Trek.
