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.
