The 5 acres are covered in lights with holiday and Christmas displays throughout the trail. You can now go see Christmas in the Garden until December 30th. Hours of operation are 6 pm to 10 pm and the entrance closes at 9:30 pm. They do ask for a suggested donation of $5 dollars per person or $15 dollars per family. It is the biggest fundraiser of the year for them so if you feel like donating more, they would gladly take it.
Things To Consider When You Go
Typically, the garden will close due to inclement weather but you can always check their Facebook page if the weather looks gross and you want to be sure. It will be cold so make sure you are prepared for the weather when you go. It is 5 acres and it does require walking. Make sure you are prepared for that as well. Otherwise, just make sure you take lots of pictures and get in the Christmas spirit.
