Tis the season to be at the Garden

Tis the season to be at the Garden whether it be for a stroll throughout the grounds or a holiday evening at Snowy Nights in My Big Backyard.
The entire staff here at the Garden has been spending their time hanging thousands of lights in preparation for Snowy Nights which starts December 2nd. A lot of work, sweat and tears goes into this event to completely transform the Children's Garden into a magical, enchanted holiday celebration perfect for all ages. The staff has really join forced with open and (strong) arms to make this yearly event a holiday tradition, and the reward is worth it when we see the faces of guests brighten as they see the lights for the first time.So come play in the “snow,” sip hot cocoa or spiced tea, create a winter craft, and enjoy fun, games, music and lights throughout My Big Backyard.
Snowy Nights will run December 2, 3, 9, 10 and 16-23. MBG members $8/non-members $10. Visit for information.
