Each fall, the Gardens at Lake Merritt host the Autumn Lights Festival. The event is a fundraiser for the seven-acre garden in Oakland’s Lakeside Park.
Held over three evenings, the event attracts thousands of visitors of all ages. More than five thousand made it to the Bonsai Garden at Lake Merritt to see trees illuminated by the festival lights. Here are some highlights.

This year’s convention will spotlight headliners Suthin Sukosolvisit, Bjorn Bjornholm, and special guest Yasuo Mituya. The event features the workshops, demonstrations, and exhibits the convention is known for, as well as an expanded vendors area. I’ll be vending at the event with trees, tools, and supplies.
