Guests Can Help Local Food Banks and Receive 2 for 1 Festival Admission

Galveston Island, Texas — The holiday season is often a time for sharing. Moody Gardens will offer the opportunity for guests to share with those who are in need with the Friday Night Food Drive. Every Friday night from November 18 through December 30, visitors can bring a non-perishable food item and receive 2 for 1 admission to the Festival of Lights. The food drive program will benefit Galveston County and Houston Food Banks.

“Festival of Lights at Moody Gardens has become a family tradition for many of our guests that come out every year to celebrate the holiday season with us,” said Moody Gardens President and CEO John Zendt. “We are pleased to offer an opportunity to enjoy the true spirit of the season by being together and helping others in our community as well.”

Festival of Lights is the Gulf Coast’s largest holiday lighting event, receiving more than 85,000 visitors annually. It includes a mile-long trail of more than a million lights and 100 sound-enhanced animated displays sparkling over the beautiful Galveston Bay.

Admission to Festival of Lights is $5.95. Tickets to select additional attractions, such as the MG 3D holiday films, Ridefilm, 4D Special FX Theater Polar Express film, Rainforest Pyramid, Discovery Museum, Aquarium Pyramid, Colonel Paddlewheel Boat and outdoor ice skating rink, can be purchased for $6 each when accompanied by a Festival of Lights ticket. Guests will be able to come play in the snow on Saturday nights for just $6 with a Festival of Lights ticket as well.
