`Garden in Lights'

Enter a lighted winter wonderland at Annmarie Garden in Solomons. Drive through the annual "Garden in Lights," and you'll venture into a winter garden of lighted holiday decorations.

On view nightly through Jan. 1, the holiday display features themed areas, including "A Trip to the Zoo" with elephants, giraffes and other creatures in lights, "Rockefeller Center" with brightly lit skaters, fountains and a city skyline, and "Fantasyland" with lighted fairies, gnomes and dragons.

There will also be an "Ann's Art Gallery" area featuring famous paintings re-created in lights, such as Leonardo da Vinci's "Mona Lisa" and Grant Wood's "American Gothic."

While driving through the light displays, visitors can play the "Holiday I Spy" game and look for hidden decorations in the lighted scenes. Each car will be provided with a list of the hidden creations and a few clues.

And as visitors depart, they'll drive through an elaborate, colorful and mesmerizing tunnel of lights.

"Garden in Lights" runs from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. nightly through Jan. 1 at Annmarie Garden, 13480 Dowell Road, Solomons. $5 per car. Details: 410-326-4640; annmariegarden.org.
