21st Annual Holiday Wonderland

Walk along the easily accessible paths and you’ll see what sets this holiday display apart from others. It’s the wrapped trees and shrubs, beautifully lighted gazebo, cascading fountains, live fish, electric trains and animated displays including a life size manger scene. 


The Wonderland will be open daily 
November 26
th through December 30th from 6 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
