Lights at Spooky Point Returns October 13–31

Things To Do

Lights at Spooky Point, the Halloween-themed light show that Selby Gardens introduced at its Historic Spanish Point campus in Osprey last year, returns in October for a second season. This year’s show kicks off Friday, October 13 (naturally!) and remains on view nightly through Halloween. Tickets for Lights at Spooky Point can be purchased through Selby Gardens’ website at selby.org or in person at either of its two campuses. Visitors to Lights at Spooky Point will follow an eerily lit path through the wooded campus and past several of its historic structures. Along the way, they will encounter fantastically fun creations and unique Halloween light displays around every bend. Highlights that return for the second year include spectral “ghost orchids” floating above the Pioneer Graveyard, giant “Dracula orchids” draped with Spanish moss, and colorful “spider orchids” clinging to their webs in the trees. These and other decorations are inspired by actual plants of the same names, a creative nod to Selby Gardens’ botanical and horticultural mission. Guests also will find plenty of pumpkins, scores of skeletons, and other Halloween classics at “Spooky Point.” The show is designed for all ages, with just a few minor jump-scare opportunities to keep older kids happy. A limited number of tickets will be sold for each night of the show, with two entry times available—6:30 and 7:45 p.m. Guests with young children or mobility issues are encouraged to consider the earlier entry. Those who want the full “Spooky Point” experience can opt for the later slot, after dark. Ticket prices for Lights at Spooky Point are $30 for adults ($20 for Selby Gardens members), $15 for ages 5-17, and free for children 4 and under. Advance ticket purchase is encouraged, as some nights may sell out prior to opening time. Food and beverages will be sold on-site throughout each evening of the show. To learn more and purchase tickets, go online to selby.org or visit the Welcome Center at either the Downtown Sarasota campus or the Historic Spanish Point campus.
