  • Overview

    Grab your golden ticket and your coat to come to the eighth annual Holiday Lights in the Garden! This year, the Garden is celebrating the season on the Polar Express. Parents and children will be amazed by a synchronized show of lights and music over the Cypress Pond, a mile-long stroll featuring thousands of lights aglow, a free caroling hayride, photos with Santa, s’mores roasting over the firepit, 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 bar, scavenger hunt, a showing of The Polar Express on loop in the Grand Hall, and more themed nights than ever! Also, this year they 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!

    Holiday Lights will be an ongoing event on select dates through December 23rd. Refer to the event website for the full itinerary of live entertainment and other promotional nights (specific dates).
