If you were wondering whether this dazzling Maine holiday tradition would be happening or not this year, here's some terrific news as we head into Thanksgiving week.

The very popular holiday tradition of  'Gardens Aglow' at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay begins this weekend.

However, we will be staying in our vehicles as we get in the Christmas spirit.

Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens is a magical place to visit in the summertime. They have the biggest variety of plants and flowers I've ever seen, in gardens that display a rainbow of of color. I dream of having a yard this beautiful someday. Sigh.

It's also fun to stroll on the stone paths and cross a walking bridge to visit the froggies in the ponds. The peacefulness of this fantastic destination is always heavenly.

A few years ago, the good folks at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens came up with a plan for fun in the cold weather months.

They annually host an incredible array of vivid lights in late November through the beginning of the New Year.

When there is some snow on the ground, the light sparkles even more brilliantly reflecting off the countless water crystals.

According to a post on their official Facebook page, 'Gardens Aglow' will be enjoyed by visitors a drive-thru for their 6th season.

No admission to the event will be available onsite. Tickets must be purchased in advance on their website.

Admission is just $40 per car. So get your car a ticket now for some very special holiday family fun.
