If you still haven’t visited the Field of Light at Sensorio in Paso Robles, you’re in luck — the attraction will remain open through June 2020.
For about six months, Artist Bruce Munro’s installation has displayed 58,000 solar-powered, fiber-optic lights in a 15-acre field of rolling hills off Highway 46 East.
The “stemmed spheres,” together with live music, wine and food trucks, have created an experience that’s drawn more than 100,000 visitors, according to a news release from public relations firm Carla Befera & Co.TOP ARTICLES Cal Poly may be close to hiring a new head football coach — from a Pac 12 school
Field of Light is part of Sensorio, an attraction dreamed up by Ken Hunter, co-owner of the nearby Hunter Ranch Golf Course. Once it’s fully developed, the property will include gardens, interactive art, an event center and a hotel.
Sensorio staff have been tight-lipped on how long the attraction will ultimately remain in Paso Robles. The installation’s original closing date was Jan. 5, 2020, although organizers hinted it would likely have a longer tenure.
“Since its opening last May, the immersive exhibit immediately captured an international audience, significantly exceeding all attendance expectations with thousands of visitors arriving from around the globe to experience this remarkable event,” the release reads.
Tickets for dates past Jan. 5 will go on sale on Dec. 17.
Field of Light’s hours will shift during the winter to accommodate changing sunset times. Poor weather during the rainy season could also cause cancellations, although ticket-holders will be able to redeem their tickets at a future date.
During December and January, the attraction will be be open from 5 to 9 p.m. on Thursday and Sunday and 5 to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
