Twinkling lights are making the Green Bay Botanical Garden sparkle again for their 23rd year of WPS Garden of Lights from November 29th 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 …… including the new light display, Butterflies in motion! You will want to see it all 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……
