On Thursday we went to Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond, VA for their Gardenfest of Lights, Fidos After 5 event. Each year the Gardens designates two nights where people can bring their dogs along to look at the lights. Next night for dogs is January 3rd from 5 to 10pm. This year's theme is East meets West to commemorate the 2012 centennial of Japan's gift of cherry trees to Washington, D.C.
The botanical garden is located at 1800 Lakeside Avenue north of Richmond. Admission is $11 for humans and $2 for canines. The canine admission is donated to the Richmond SPCA. It is quite magical with the whole place lit up. Thursday was a beautifully clear night with an almost full moon!
Wish you were here!
