A family oriented festival of lights and music in the Garden. Santa will be here each evening! The Gardens will be lit up with thousands of Christmas lights. The Milner House is decorated in old fashioned Christmas splendour, where volunteers from the local library delight children and parents alike with storytelling, and a variety of local musicians perform seasonal music from choral to instrumental. Guess the number of teddy bears in the gardener's cottage to win a stuffed polar bear prize or bid on silent auction items. Tea Room, outdoor refreshments stand and Gift shops will be open. Jams made from fruits from the garden make tasty gifts. Although there are thousands of Christmas lights, we suggest you bring a flashlight. Sorry, we are unable to take reservations for the tea room. Onsite shuttle for mobility challenged. For more information, please visit website.
