Longwood Gardens Nightscape Opens

Last night Mike and I escaped the City and headed to Longwood Gardens to check out their new summer exhibit
Nightscape: A Light and Sound Experience before it opens to the public Friday
July 3. Nightscape takes you on an immersive journey around the Gardens with moving imagery, light, and original music using Longwood’s landscape as the canvas.

There was a preview party cocktail reception as day became dusk with lots of members, supporters, sponsors and media.
The caterer was the Restaurant Associates, and everything was delicious. The spread was beautiful too.
I loved the decor too. They served cotton candy in lighted “cones”.
