The Toro Nagashi Lantern Evening has captured the imagination of many people and response to the first one (Aug. 1) was unprecedented in our experience. We listened to your feedback and added a second Lantern Evening on Wed., Aug. 8 from 6-9:30 p.m. with tickets available first to MEMBERS ONLY. If not sold out by Thursday, Aug. 2 at 7:59 p.m., tickets will then be available to the general public. If you already have tickets to the first night (Aug. 1), please be considerate and give others a chance to reserve tickets for this second night (Aug. 8).
If you have questions or concerns, please email us at contactus@lewisginter.org. Thank you for your membership and support of Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden.
