Experience an all-new musically-orchestrated topiary display in the Four Seasons Garden, wander through the new illuminated prairie garden (coming this fall), explore the extended lights of fire and ice in the perennial gardens, view an expanded display of quaint buildings from Department 56’s Dickens’ Village series and more.
Visitors will enjoy annual traditions including the towering orchid tree, live music (daily 6 to 8 p.m.), holiday shopping in The Garden Store, crackling fires to warm cold hands or roast a marshmallow, warm beverages, activities and more. Model train displays built by the Metrolina Model Railroaders can be found throughout the Garden.
