ABOUT THE DISPLAY
Volunteers have been busy planting the garden. We have added new plants this year along with bringing back some of the favorite items.

Hidden through the garden we have our beloved critters, making it an adventure for our younger visitors to find their favorites, such as Charlotte in her web and Willie the Slug. And this year we will have some new surprise critters for you to find, making for an exciting adventure for all ages. Plan now to attend!

Thousands of volunteer hours have gone into another fantastic light show. Many, many thanks to all of you who have helped and are still helping! Interested in learning the secrets of these flower creations? Join our Garden d'Lights volunteer program. More information...
