Realistically people got clustered around the more bright areas they were constantly stopping to take photos so you're standing right next to everyone. Worth the price but definitely cold as heck to be out at night right now. The lights were beautiful but a couple of my favorite areas were closed off and we weren't allowed to go to them.
  • Beautiful Evening Garden Walk for the holidays. Not as crowded as normal River of Lights due to social distancing policies, and frankly it was more enjoyable that way. Great way to spend a chilly winter night! The staff was helpful and the event was well-organized.
