As the temperatures start to take a tumble and the holiday music infiltrates the air, it’s time to let the festivities begin! Kids get antsy this time of year, patiently – and not so patiently – waiting for snow days, cookies, presents, hot chocolate and other things that signal that the holiday season is upon us once more! This time of year is wonderful because ‘tis the season to put focus on family. You build gingerbread houses together, cuddle up by the fire, decorate your tree, and choose gifts for those you care about most. It’s magical! And magic fills the air in more ways than one.
Twinkling, glittering lights line houses and trees and landscapes. Nighttime is aglow with sparkling bulbs, contributing to the merriment in the air. The picture of perfection is walking in the chilly evening, creating a trail of footsteps as the snow gently falls all around. One by one, the lights start to twinkle on each home in the neighborhood.
To experience this delight on a grand scale, be sure to take your family to Green Bay Botanical Garden’s 19th annual WPS Garden of Lights this year. At this fun event, there are things for everyone to do! The new trail design features over 250,000 lights and kids can also expect a visit from Santa, Mrs. Claus, and their elves.
The new display this year is the “Northern Lights,” which features more than 15,000 glittering blue, green, teal, pink and purple bulbs. Let your kids guide you along to see the many displays that twinkle against the night sky. You can walk the trail or ride in the horse-drawn wagons.
Besides the light exhibitions, you and your family can also enjoy live entertainment, snacks, beverages to warm you up, a model train exhibition set up by the G-Gagers, and don’t forget to explore the WPS Trellis Gift Shop to search for unique presents for everyone in your life.
WPS Garden of Lights is open 5 – 9 pm on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, November 27 – December 20. It is also open December 26 – 30. Don’t miss Family Night on Sunday, November 29, where children 12 and under receive free walking admission with one paid adult! Tickets are only available at the door.
Green Bay Botanical Garden is located at 2600 Larsen Road in Green Bay. Click here for directions. To purchase your tickets in advance or for more details about this event, visit www.gbbg.org/wpsgardenoflights.
If you haven’t already made this special local event a family tradition, now is the time! Your family’s faces will light up as they explore the colorful displays. Your children will whisper their Christmas wishes in Santa’s ear, sip on their rich hot chocolate, and revel in the sparkling winter wonderland. Take part in the magic created by Green Bay Botanical Garden!
