The Arboretum by Candlelight

Over 38,000 guests enjoyed the Arboretum by candlelight in 2017! We thank all who made the Luminary Walk part of their holiday this year.

Thousands of candles illuminated over a mile of pathways through woods and gardens, while holiday lights brightened the trees, buildings and bridges. This was the 18th year for what has become the traditional kick-off of the holiday season for many families. Kids loved the Gnome and Fairy Villages, colorful Children’s Garden and visiting with Santa. Grown-ups appreciated the quiet walk through the winter woods. And everyone enjoyed the beautiful music throughout the gardens and hot Louisburg cider around the campfire, followed by a horse-drawn wagon ride.

All proceeds benefit the Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens.
