You may have seen the Garden in bloom in summer, but have you seen it glow in the winter? Join us for the 16th annual Winter Garden aGlow at the Idaho Botanical Garden and see our dazzling display of nearly 270,000 sparkling lights artfully displayed throughout the holiday season.
Special guests Santa and his reindeer Prancer will visit from the North Pole and the Holiday Express Train will wind its way through the glowing winter wonderland. Local choirs will fill the air with music on select nights. Check the calendar for specific dates.
