Let garden glow at botanic garden’s Solstice Stroll

Dec 18, 2013

Join the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden Foundation (KBGF) in bringing light to the longest nights of the year.

For one weekend only (Dec. 20 & 21), KBGF will be lighting up the garden with lights, luminaries, and glowing sculptures.

The Solstice Stroll will be held from 4:30 to 9 pm at the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden at 20312 15th Ave. NW, Shoreline.

Stop by and enjoy warm beverages and cookies, holiday carols, glow sticks for the kids, and the company of friends and neighbors.

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

“The Kruckeberg Botanic Garden is a rare gem. I am looking forward to seeing it glow,” she said.

Come discover a stand of giant flowers, a miniature "hobbit hive," a scattering of delicate frilly orbs, and more throughout the forest-like setting. The entryway to the stroll will be lined with luminaries made by local children.

The event is free. Donations will be encouraged to help put on the event.

The 2013 Solstice Stroll is sponsored by: Dunn Lumber, John Wott, Sky Nursery, Shoreline Farmer’s Market, Char Garrett, Emily and Dan Suiter, Main Street Electric, and Bonnie Storm.

Parking is available on site. Signs will direct you to overflow parking at Syre Elementary and a shuttle will be available. Don’t forget to dress warmly for the Stroll.
