Garden Glow to be launched in St Louis for 2013
July 25, 2013 by Sarah
Missouri Botanical Garden in St Louis will be launching the Garden Glow light exhibit in 2013 in response to requests from visitors.
Garden Glow will be the first light exhibit to be held at the garden and is expected to be a resounding success. The president of the garden, Peter Wyse Jackson, says that 2013 is the year during which visitors will see a light show at the gardens.
Work has started on the light exhibit, with designers, electricians, and carpenters working six days a week until the launch on November 23. The exhibit will continue until January 4, 2014.
The Chinese Lantern Festival, which was held last year, was a complete success, attracting large crowds despite the bad weather. The success of it persuaded officials at the garden that evening events would be popular with visitors. Thousands of LED lights will adorn the hedge maze, Tower Grove House, and the Climatron, creating an interactive display in the gardens. As visitors walk along illuminated pathways, there will be a surprise around each corner.
The senior manager of exhibits and events, Lynn Kerkemeyer, said that other garden shows held in Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Denver had been successful, with 106,000 visitors attending the Atlanta Botanical Garden.
The success of the exhibit also depends on the promotion of the event, which is where local brochure printers are usually sought out in cases like this. Flyer printing and poster printing may all be required to promote the event in St Louis.
