CORAL GABLES_We had heard a lot about NightGarden -- a first-time event which debuted at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden last November. It was scheduled to end on Jan. 6, but luckily got extended by popular demand for an extra three days, now ending on Jan. 11. I say "luckily" because it gave us a chance to see it before it closed.
Described as a "magical light spectacular," it lives up to the billing.
Situated on 23 acres of the botanic garden, it's like entering a fairyland of color and light, where holograhpic hummingbirds and fairies dart among the plants, guests can romp in the "snow" and even converse with a wise old "Talking Tree."
Visitors are also invited to participate in a "Mystical Treasure Hunt" by answering a series of questions related to the event for a chance to enter a raffle.
You also should take a few minutes to learn about how Fairchild and NASA are teaming up to find out which plants thrive best in space, an exhibit featured at the event. Along the paths there are places to get food and drink as well, including food trucks.
Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is located at 10901 Old Cutler Road Miami, FL 33156. For more information on The NightGarden and to purchase tickets, visit TheNightGarden.com.

There are 'ooh and ahh' moments everywhere you look
The tunnel of snow and light makes everyone a kid again
Food trucks are on hand when hunger strikes
The gardens are ablaze with light
Look at the size of those dandelions!
