Twinkling lights are making the Green Bay Botanical Garden sparkle again for their 22nd year of WPS Garden of Lights from November 23rd thru December 30th.  What is it about a bunch of Christmas lights that gets us so excited? All we really know is there’s something undeniably magical and special about those little lights as winter is pushed back for a moment by the twinkle and glow.

 

Here are 5 Things to know about the Garden of Lights

 

1.)  There are over 300,000 lights that will make the garden glow with beautiful colors for the season.  Can you imagine the amount of work it would take to unravel a ball of lights like that?

2.) Bring your camera to capture the magic.  There are photo ops everywhere!  And you may even catch someone popping the question in this all too perfect setting! (Let’s hope they say, Yes!)

 

3.) The features are Amazing and Beautiful!  The Icicle Forest, the walk-thru Catepillar, Gorgeous Swans, the Tallest and Brightest Christmas Tree, Flowers, Butterflies, and so MUCH MORE …… You will want to see it twice, because there is so much to see!

4.) You can walk this 2 mile path or there is the option of a horse drawn wagon ride but either way make sure to bundle up.

5.) It’s more than just the lights that makes this a must do on your list this year.  There are children’s stories told by Mrs. Claus, a Model Train exhibit set up and run by the G-Gagers Train Club (it usually delivers candy to kids watching it go round), a Candy Cane Lane with family friendly activities, a Gift Shop, Food, Hot Cocoa and of course, the big guy, Santa!

 

Just a few more things……

You can enjoy this glow and twinkle of the garden on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings from 5pm-9pm. November 23rd thru December 30th.

There is free parking and a free shuttle from NWTC parking lot.

Family Night is Sunday, November 25th.  This means children 12 & under in the same household receive FREE walking admission with one paid adult.

Volunteers are needed to make this event the best it can be!  Find available shifts and more info about volunteering right here.

You can find even more details about the WPS Garden of Lights on their website and facebook page.

Enjoy this magical event this holiday season and don’t forget to tag us in all your fun photos at #northeastwiactivities

FREE Donut Day

FREE Donut Day

National Donut Day is Friday June 1st. YUM!

National Donut Day was originally established in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army to honor women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I. The celebration is traditionally held on the first Friday of June. The women, dubbed “Doughnut Lassies” are often credited with popularizing the doughnut in the United States when the troops returned home from war.

Many donut shops like to celebrate this day by giving away free donuts.  Here are just a few for our area!

 

🍩 Krispy Kreme – Whether it’s powdered, filled or a hot Original Glazed®, stop in for a free doughnut from Krispy Kreme. In honor of National Doughnut Day, on Friday, June 1, stop in to any Krispy Kreme US or Canadian location for a FREE doughnut of any variety–including its world famous Original Glazed® doughnut.

🍩 Dunkin’ Donuts – Dunkin’ Donuts will celebrate National Donut Day by offering guests a Free classic donut with any beverage purchase.  The offer is good all day on June 2nd at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants. Find your closest Dunkin’ Donuts.

🍩 Manderfield’s Home Bakery – Get a Dozen Donuts on Friday for only $8.95!

🍩 Uncle Mike’s Bakery – Salvation Army staff and volunteers will distribute free original recipe donuts from 7am – 11am and there will be free coffee for veterans.  Also, Uncle Mike’s will donate $2 to The Salvation Army for every dozen donuts sold that day and match customer donations collected in the red kettles.

🍩 Kwik Trip – Stop in to get one FREE Glazer Donut with your Kwik Rewards card!

🍩 Walmart: Get one free glazed doughnut at all Walmart stores Friday. The retailer expects to give 1.2 million doughnuts Friday.
