Pittsburgh Botanic Gardens’ Dazzling Nights holiday lights show

Pittsburgh Botanic Garden wants to dazzle your holiday season nights.

The nonprofit Pittsburgh Botanic Garden, located in Collier and North Fayette townships, says its Dazzling Nights event transforms the botanic garden “into a stunning winter wonderland featuring a million dazzling lights, shining forests, magical displays, music and beautiful sculptures.”

The organization bills it as a 65-acre “journey of awe-inspiring light experiences.”

The walk-through lights display offers a stunning 30-foot-tall tree, perfect for a selfie or group photo.

Interactive lights on the ground will light up as visitors walk on them.

Visitors will walk through a “forest of light and fog as if walking through the aurora borealis.”

They’ve even got a 65-foot-long tunnel of “wondrous light.”

And, of course, there is festive music and snow.

Food and drink are available for purchase.

Dazzling Nights is open Nov. 27 through Jan. 1 (closed Christmas Day). First entry is at 5:30 p.m., and last entry is at 9 p.m. No guests will be admitted after 9:10 p.m.

Tickets must be purchased for a specific time and date and are not available at the door. Tickets are $25 for adults and $22 for children (plus fees). Children 2 and under are free.

Limited, on-site reserved parking is available for a fee. Complimentary off-site parking and a shuttle are provided. Off-site parking is located at the CCAC West Hills Center (1000 McKee Rd, Oakdale, PA 15071).

Visitors using the shuttle are asked to arrive at the shuttle stop 30 minutes prior to their timed ticket entry time. Handicapped parking is available on-site on a first-come, first-served basis with a valid disability parking permit displayed.
