2010 Japanese Garden Lights

Toby Snelgrove has passed along some images of some of the activities during opening night at the Japanese Gardens. They are available to view and download here.

The woman of the Japanese Gardens sort, organize, and purchase the lights. Thirty-five volunteers from the Lions, Parks and Rec., and the women of the gardens set the lights up in 3 hours. Len Epp and his lighting group take about 2 days to complete the electrical. A must see.
