Celebrate the holidays like never before with this centerpiece exhibit featuring an elaborate collection of 25-foot Victorian gazebos filled with the charming costumed characters and whimsical animals made famous by the beloved Christmas carol. Each gazebo will be encased in glass and extravagantly decorated on all sides to provide a dramatic, three-dimensional experience, and will feature mechanical parts and festive music that will assist in bringing the characters to an even more life-like state.
Enjoy the .75-mile walk through the garden exhibit, as you witness these handcrafted gazebos spread across our winter wonderland. Please note that wheelchairs will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis; however trams will not be in service during nighttime showings.
During the evening, the garden remains open for extended hours for The 12 Days at Night displaying the illuminated gazebos for magical nighttime viewing. New this year is the addition of 500,000 lights throughout the garden, trimming the architecture of the historic homes and lighting the canopies overhead—including a 30-foot-tall tree at the center of property.
Holiday tea, Santa sightings and special activities round out a visit to the Dallas Arboretum.
