Description

Holiday Lights


Grab your golden ticket and your coat to come to the 8th annual Holiday Lights in the Garden! This year we're celebrating the season on the Polar Express. Parents and children will be amazed by a mile-long stroll featuring thousands of lights aglow, a free caroling hayride, photos with Santa, S’mores roasting over the fire pit, entertainment on select evenings and free crafts for children. The Garden Gift Shop will be open each evening with a wonderful holiday selection. New this year is Santa's workshop, a place for kids to secretly purchase holiday gifts for their parents, a hot cocoa truck, a showing of the Polar Express on loop and more themed nights than ever! Also, this year we made a deal with Santa. The Garden will be a letter drop off for your childrens' wishlists and in return, Santa will be at the Garden EVERY night of Holiday Lights!

"Sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can't see"

-The Polar Express
