Vero Beach botanical garden to light up holiday season

November 21, 2016 by  

This holiday season, Vero Beach’s McKee Botanical Garden will be hosting two special events.

For the Holidays at McKee, the gardens will be bringing seasonal music performed on a vintage organ, as well as festive decoration and thousands of sparkling lights. It has been rumoured that even Santa and Mrs. Claus may be paying a visit to the facility in person. The Nights of Lights will boast the holiday lights plus pathways lined with luminaires, as well as specially lit ponds and other water features.

A part of events that has always proven to be popular is the large scale model train display. This will be back for another year, and will include a brand new village for it to travel through. Holiday cards and other promotional items can be produced to be sold to raise funds during these types of special events.

The garden’s regular admission prices will be in effect throughout the holiday period. The entry fee for adults is $12, while for seniors it is $11, and for children from the ages of 3 to 12, the price is $8. There will be no admission fee for those ages three and under, nor for McKee members.

The Holidays at McKee celebration will take place from 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm, from December 21 to 23, and its Night of Lights festivities will be held from December 28 to 30. More information about the events has been posted on the McKee Botanical Garden’s website.
