In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

Festival Of Lights Grand Opening At Moody Gardens® Attracts Record-Breaking Crowd

GALVESTON, Texas, Nov. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Santa Claus opened the holiday season at Moody Gardens®, flipping the giant electrical switch to turn on more than one million lights at the 11th annual Festival of Lights.

More than 8,000 guests, the largest in the history of the Festival, visited Moody Gardens to watch Santa drop in and kick off the largest holiday light display on the Gulf Coast.

The festivities began at 4 p.m. with live entertainment from Galveston Ballet, the Salvation Army Harbor Light Choir, Vibe Dance Company, Amy's Dance Academy, and the St. Ignatius Choir with the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.

Santa was to parachute down to Moody Gardens halfway through the event, but windy conditions forced him to arrive via golf cart from the airport instead. Still as jolly as ever despite his change in travel plans, he flipped the switch just after 6 p.m. to officially kick off the holiday season on Galveston Island.

"Festival of Lights has become a holiday tradition for families throughout the region," Moody Gardens president and CEO John Zendt said. "It was a special treat to see the kid's faces light up when Santa came driving up in the golf cart from the airport."

Zendt added that new attractions such as the Snow Tubing Arctic Ice Slide and additional light displays continue to provide new guest experiences. The mile-long trail features over 100 lighted scenes themed to holiday music with an outdoor ice rink. Holiday films are featured at three types of theaters. The family-friendly Moody Gardens Hotel also offers spectacular views of the destination's iconic pyramids dressed in holiday lights.

The Festival of Lights will welcome visitors from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Nov. 16 to Dec. 8, Thursday to Saturday. On Dec. 13, the Festival will be open nightly until Jan. 5.

Admission to the Festival of Lights is $6.95. With the purchase of a Festival of Lights ticket, ice skate rentals, tickets to the Aquarium Pyramid®, Rainforest Pyramid®, Discovery Museum, MG 3D Theater, 4D Special FX Theater, Ridefilm and Colonel Paddlewheel Boat can be purchased for only $6 each.

New this year, Snow Tubing allows guests to take a ride down a 100-foot long Arctic Ice Slide while riding in an inner tube. Snow Tubing is open on each night of Festival of Lights. The cost is $12 for 10 rides, and $18 for unlimited rides.

Moody Gardens® is a public, non-profit, educational destination utilizing nature in the advancement of rehabilitation, conservation, recreation, and research.
