TUESDAY, OCTOBER 22:     If you’d like to fill your evening with magical color, then we suggest joining us at the Botanical Gardens of Montreal to witness the GARDENS OF LIGHT which opened last year and includes the Chinese Lanterns and the Japanese Gardens.       Hospitality Board member Josette Wecsu suggests that we rendez-vous at 4 pm at the Botanical Gardens cafeteria for coffee.   The tour  begins at 6 pm.

From their website:  “For Charles-Mathieu Brunelle, Executive Director of the Space for Life, “Gardens of Lightexpresses the very essence of what the Space for Life is creating: a place where every visitor is invited to get closer to nature through striking and meaningful experiences appealing to the senses. This kind of otherworldly experience in the heart of the city is truly exceptional.”

“With Gardens of Light, we wanted to reveal the colours, textures and shapes of the plants and cultural symbols at the Botanical Garden after dark. We are very proud to welcome people from near and far to this fabulous celebration of light, and we’re sure they’ll be amazed,” says Gilles Vincent, Director of the Botanical Garden.

The cost is $14 or $10 with an Access Card.
