Gardens Aglow 2018 opens
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.”
