Garden Glow opens Saturday night in Brookings

AT TOP: New and on display for the first time is the lighting of the Cottage Garden and (middle) Adrienne’s Field of Light, both made possible by the Mark and Kathy Noorgard Adrienne and Olson Buel Garden Glow Fund. BOTTOM: Made possible by generous individual sponsors are some of the trees in the Enchanted Forest.

BROOOKINGS – “It is a signature event,” noted Lisa Marotz, director of operations at South Dakota State University’s McCrory Gardens. She’s talking about the annual Garden Glow extravaganza of lights – about 250,000 of them decorating displays that are spread out over about four acres – and the sounds of the season that fill the air on crisp, cold winter nights. The director is also a spokesperson and historian for what the gardens and its annual Glow are all about.
