Ruth Bancroft Garden, a 3-acre facility in Walnut Creek, is lighting up its outdoor gardens with thousands of lights and lasers to create a beautiful nighttime stroll for guests. Succulents, cacti, and trees will become colorful sculptures. I think this event the ideal way to introduce children to the magic of a holiday light show without overstimulating them.
