Runs December 6 through January 5  Award-winning holiday light show to feature nightly entertainment

Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center in Solomons, Maryland has announced the complete entertainment schedule for Annmarie Garden In Lights, their award-winning holiday light show. Start your tour in the Murray Arts Building where you will find the Ornament Show & Sale, nightly entertainment, exhibits, and Dream Weaver Holiday Café. Grab a “Holiday I Spy” guide and head outside for a delightful walk in the woods. The theme for this year’s light show is Celebrate Museums – Annmarie Style! Enjoy a spectacular tour through seven museums-in-lights, with special surprises and unexpected twists on your favorite topics! Enjoy the dazzling light sculptures of the Museum of Popular Culture, the Air & Space Museum, Annmarie’s Zoological Park, the Museum of the American West, Annmarie’s Art Gallery, the Aquarium, and the Botanical Garden!

You will find superheroes and city scenes in Popular Culture, rockets and aliens in Air & Space, a jazz trio and dancers alongside famous works of art in the Art Gallery, sea creatures, pirates, and beach goers in the Aquarium, as well as fairies and butterflies in the Botanical Garden, to name but a few! Some special surprises inspired by popular television shows, fairy tales, and games will be hidden along the path between the museums. The “Holiday I Spy” guide will help you find a variety of “light sculptures,” including a lucky Annmarie shamrock hidden in each museum scene! Annmarie Garden In Lights is certain to be the most beautiful and surprising trip to the museum you will ever take! After your walk, come back inside to enjoy a warm snack at the Dream Weaver Holiday Café and enjoy live music and more.
