Gnome Valley and the Enchanted Garden of Lights

Reporting:  Rabbit Zielke

Rock City’s Enchanted Garden of Lights is an annual holiday celebration at the top of Lookout Mountain.  The gardens are lit up by hundreds of thousands of LEDs formed into light sculptures and scenes of winter delight.  This year the area that was once home to the White Fallow Deer has been transformed into Gnome Valley.  Rock City has a long history with gnomes including the Fairyland Caverns and other garden gnomes.  Artist Matthew Dutton has been sculpting new gnomes to populate Gnome Valley and made sure these little people were just as filled with the holiday spirit as the rest of the gardens.

Each weekend at Rock City during December there will be music and entertainment at the pavilion.  You can schedule a reservation to have dinner with Santa and spend the entire evening at Rock City.

Be on the lookout for Jack Frost.  Rumor has it he is hiding in the Fairyland Caverns and keeps moving around to avoid detection.  You can help out by locating him and posting his picture on facebook.

The Enchanted Garden of Lights is open every evening from 6:00 to 9:00 pm until December 31st.  They are closed Christmas Eve.
