Don’t miss this dazzling display of almost 60,000 solar-powered lights.
The captivating 15-acre light display across rolling hills at Sensorio in Paso Robles is open, after closing in response to the pandemic. The field filled with around 60,000 fiber-optic stemmed spheres, turns into a glowing technicolor blanket when the sun goes down.
While California blooms were largely missed as we stayed indoors during the lockdown, this unique experience offers us a different kind of super bloom to look forward to. ‘Bruce Munro: Field of Light’ at Sensorio was first debuted in May 2019, but due to popular demand, the internationally-acclaimed artist’s extraordinary open-air installation will be extended through May 2022.
Since its reopening, there have been a few new additions to the experience. Alongside the glowing fields of bulbed stems, Munro has created a new luminous installation titled the ‘Light Towers’ which is made up of vivid 6‑foot-tall columns made with 17,000 wine bottles. Each bottle is lit with optic fibers lights that are synchronized to a stunning score—and at no additional cost.
If you don’t want to leave the mesmerizing display after wandering through the grounds, you could also opt for the VIP option. You’ll get to take in the spectacular landscapes while getting cozy around a firepit, sipping on wine or some bubbly.
The park has adapted to the new health and safety regulations with a number of measures in place to allow for social distancing. According to a statement by the park, groups will be limited to ten people and unvaccinated guests will be required to wear face coverings. Advanced bookings can be made onlinehere.
