Here’s What’s Happening in November

Saturday, November 5
3:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Highline SeaTac Botanical Garden welcomes Ciscoe Morris and KING TV’s Evening Magazine to the Tin Theater for the Southwest King County World Premier of “Giants,” a documentary about the ruthlessly competitive world of growing pumpkins. Prepare to be amazed as you watch Pacific Northwest growers battle nature – and each other – to capture the giant pumpkin world’s ultimate prize. Narrated by actor Tom Skerritt and with a cameo appearance by Ciscoe, it’s a movie about growing the world’s largest pumpkin. And growing apart. All proceeds will go the Highline Botanical Garden Foundation for the support of the Highline SeaTac Botanical Garden.
Tickets: $25 in advance for Foundation members. General admission tickets go on sale at the Tin Theater On October 10, also $25.

2011 “Garden d’Lights” at the Bellevue Botanical Garden
Brought to you by the Bellevue Botanical Garden Society, Garden d’Lights features over a half million lights which transform the Bellevue Botanical Garden into a blossoming winter wonderland. Inspired by plants found in Northwest gardens, hundreds of volunteers work year round to bundle strings of lights into three dimensional flowers, shrubs, and vines. In addition to artistic interpretation of plants, the volunteer team has created charming animal characters. Charlotte the spider remains a favorite and will be back in her web near the Ground Cover Garden. Look for the newest member of the menagerie in Yao Garden.
