Illuminated evening walks featuring live acoustic music, cookies and hot cider and more than 1000 glowing, candle-lit luminarias lighting a half-mile, accessible loop on Indian Hill Mesa. This year, adventure through our Grove of Thorns, an enchanting installation of giant, crystalline thorns. During Luminaria Nights, these larger-than-life sculptures, part of the Game of Thorns exhibition, will be unveiled and dramatically lit (viewable December 9, 15 and 16 for the general public).
