The biggest event of 2018 was undoubtedly the Nine Nights of Lights at the SVG Botanical Garden, held under the theme, “a Botanical Garden of Lights”. From December 15th to 23rd, the Botanical Garden was transformed into a magical garden of lights. Thousands of colourful, twinkling lights, tree ornaments and other festive decorations, combined to create an awesome spectacle. Patrons traveled from near and far nightly, to be a part of this festivity. This year's event featured nightly performances by popular and upcoming local artist such as Upstage Calypso Tent, Janelle Alexander, Epic Sounds Steel Orchestra, Rose Hall Drummers and YELL Youth Band. This was the fourth year of celebration since the inaugural event in 2015.
