Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens’ Gardens Aglow event opened to the public Nov. 15. More than 650,000 LED lights have been woven through 14 acres of central gardens. In a press release announcing the 2018 event, CMBG said “Illuminated trails, dramatic designs, and winter-themed exhibits make the largest light display in Maine not only bigger, but a brighter, more radiant experience.”
