I recently came across an article in Honolulu Family about an after-dark illuminating flower light display in Victoria Ward park. The display is called “Light Garden, a 1,000-Year Bloom” and features more than 2,300 3D flower sculptures that pulse with LED lights in time to music. Have you guys heard about it? I hadn’t either until I read the article. Naturally, I decided to take my kids, Lincoln and Isabella, to check it out.
We got there around 6pm on a Wednesday, which worked out perfectly for a few reasons. First, the display is only open to the public from 6pm-9pm daily. If you get there before 6pm or after 9pm you’ll find the display barricaded. We got there right as they opened it up to the public which meant my kids didn’t have to wait around. Second, I was able to capture pictures of the kids interacting with the light display at dusk and then after dark and I found that the pictures I took at dusk turned out way better. Maybe the amazing sunset in the background had something to do with that. 🙂 Last, because it was a school night it wasn’t packed at all. We almost had the display completely to ourselves.
If you haven’t had the chance to check out this display, I would highly recommend you go! We loved watching the lights change color as different songs blared across the sound system. There was also a huge open area for the kids to run around and burn off some energy. If you decide you want to check it out you gotta go this week because the display will only be open through January 31st!
