The Kruckeberg Botanic Garden Foundation (KBGF) brought light to the longest nights of the year with its December 20 and 21 Solstice Stroll. 

The garden was lit up with lights, luminaries, and glowing sculptures. Guests enjoyed warm beverages and cookies, holiday carols, glow sticks for the kids, and the company of friends and neighbors.

KBGF partnered with artist Cynthia Knox, creative director of the SummerSet Arts Festival, to work with KBGF volunteers to create art for the Stroll.

Visits were treated to a stand of giant flowers, a miniature "hobbit hive," a scattering of delicate frilly orbs, and more surprises throughout the forest-like setting. The entryway to the stroll was lined with luminaries made by local children.
