It’s time to get in the Holiday spirit! There’s no better way to do so than to come to our Holiday Celebration this weekend. For our blog readers and Facebook followers, we’re giving you the inside scoop 😉
Celebration Hours: 9 am to 6 pm, Saturday & Sunday
We have lots of great family fun planned this weekend so make sure you bring the kids for these great events.
Santa & Mrs. Claus photo opp
We will have the big guy himself here with his wife. Bring the kids to sit on Santa’s lap and chat with him about their Christmas wishes. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be at the Garden Center Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm.
On Saturday, Santa and Mrs. Claus will have a friend or two with them as they are bringing some of their reindeer… yes REAL LIVE reindeer. We are quite excited for this, as the kids just love seeing them! Remember the reindeer will be at the Garden Center Saturday ONLY.
Christmas carols by local singer Mackenzie Kiederding
You may not have heard of her, but we promise you will want to see her perform. Mackenzie is a local artist who tried out for a spot on The Voice. She will be performing Saturday and Sunday from 1pm to 3pm.
Opening the winter habitat for the Garden Center pets
The weather has gotten chilly so many of our pets have moved into their winter home. The staff worked hard to build this new home this year so we can keep our pets at the Garden Center all year. Bring the kids to see our tortoise, iguanas and others in their new winter home.
Always back by popular demand, Face Painting by Jessica! And according to her Facebook page, she has lots of new holiday themed designs. Stop by and have your face painted 10 am to 4 pm Saturday or Sunday.
Blue Chip Animal Farm and ornaments for our tree
As many of you know we are HUGE supporters of Blue Chip Animal Farm in Dallas. There will be volunteers at the Celebration this weekend with some animals that would love a home for the holidays. They will also be collecting pet food donations. Anyone who donates a bag of pet food can put a creative homemade ornament on our Christmas tree. The person with the most creative ornament will win a $100 gift certificate to the Garden Center!
Join us at 5pm on Sunday for our Christmas tree lighting! The ornaments from the contest will be displayed.
As always, there will be food vendors all weekend…one of them may be a very special cupcake truck :).
