Supper with Santa includes a pasta dinner, cookies and hot cocoa, a picture with Santa, a night stroll through the tropical conservatory, and Santa's Workshop stations, where kids can make fun crafts and act silly in the photo booth. After dinner, you'll visit Mrs. Claus's Cookie Kitchen for cookies and hot cocoa. Reservations are required.
The birthday celebration, which is included with admission to The Butterfly House, will be filled with a Story Walk, live caterpillar encounters, crafts, and meet & greets with the Very Hungry Caterpillar himself.
Leapin' Lizards! Kids will have a wild time when The Magic House plays host to creatures big and small, from a mighty python to a tiny gecko!
More than a half million lights will illuminate some of the Garden's most iconic locations, walkways will be transformed into sensory light tunnels providing an explosion of visual magic, and traditional candlelight village displays will delight crowds of all ages.
