| $5

Follow the illuminated garden pathways on an evening stroll through the 20 acre botanical gardens, where the wintery garden paths are brought to life with over 400,000 lights, 100 beautifully decorated trees, over 2,500 luminaries, animated displays, more than 500 dangling icicle lights hung from the tallest trees in the Garden and more. Back by popular demand are the Selfie Stops, with fun props and amazing backdrops that offer holiday photo opportunities. Step inside to enjoy a warm beverage or other treat from the Polar Pit Stop, along with festive local musicians and holiday shopping in the Cottage Garden Gallery. Santa himself will stop by on certain dates.  Please visit the Rotary Botanical Gardens website below for additional details.
