Heat weary denizens sought respite in Descanso's shady arbors and groves Tuesday evening, as the La Cañada botanical garden extended its hours until 8 p.m. in the first of what will be several summertime "Descanso After Hours" events.
The ticketed event comes as local temperatures climb into the mid-90s and higher and allows visitors who might avoid outdoor activities during the daytime to have fun during cooler evening hours. Other "Descanso After Hours" nights include: July 5 and 12 and August 2, 8, 9, 10, 15, 17, 22 and 24.
Non-member admission is $9 for adults, $6 for seniors over 65 and $4 for children ages 5 to 12. Descanso Gardens members can get in free, but must order tickets online at descansogardens.org. Call (818) 949-4290.
