This popular annual event kicks off the Christmas season with thousands of candles lit up along the paths of the Kurimito Japanese Gardens. Visitors to the gardens can enjoy a stroll through the candle-lit pathways, hot apple cider, bonfires, ice sculptures and strolling carollers. The children will enjoy a visit to the Snowlight Maze as well as making a wish and hanging it on a Wish-Upon-A-Star Tree. A particularly special part of Luminaria is the Memory Lane which is available for visitors to light a candle in honour of a loved one.
