Flamingo Gardens becomes a magical fairytale land when the whimsical glass creations of Glasstudio Borowski are lit up at night. Over 80 glass and metal artworks are illuminated throughout the gardens on this self-guided tour. The next night tours will be August 25.

“Fables and Fairytales” features over 80 imaginative works of art in glass and metal by the acclaimed glass artists of Glasstudio Borowski, installed throughout Flamingo Gardens this summer.
