Winter Whimsy at the Arboretum

Looking for whimsy, playfulness, and a little magic? Join us at the Arboretum to explore the Fairy and Gnome Villages along the sculpture loop! This delightful display was designed by four talented artists and one dedicated volunteer. You may recall visiting them in the dark at the Holiday Luminary Walk. No doubt you missed some amazing details that are worth a second look. The exhibit will remain on display through the end of January. So, come on out and enjoy the magic!
