| Published:

During the annual Garden of Lights at Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, which will be held this holiday season from Nov. 16 to Jan. 1, visitors can walk through bright displays of animals, flowers and other things found in nature. Each of the displays is hand-woven with strands of colorful lights, nearly all of which are LEDs. Displays at the Garden of Lights, now in its 20th year, include a 50-foot-long caterpillar, a 14-foot-tall giraffe and a 25-foot-long Lock Ness monster.
