Celebrate the holidays like never before with this centerpiece exhibit featuring an elaborate collection of life-size Victorian gazebos filled with the charming costumed characters made famous by the beloved Christmas carol. Each gazebo is encased in glass and extravagantly decorated on all sides to provide a dramatic, three-dimensional experience, featuring working mechanical parts that bring the characters to life.
During the day, visitors can enjoy the lavishly decorated DeGolyer Estate, filled top to bottom with a collection of Byers’ Choice Ltd. Christmas Caroler figurines. This abundant private collection has generously been donated for display at the Arboretum by John and Kim Semyan. Visitors can also stroll the gardens to view seasonal plantings and enjoy a variety of family-friendly activities.
During the evening, the garden will remain open for extended hours for The 12 Days at Night, where we will showcase the beautifully illuminated gazebos for magical nighttime viewing. During this time, visitors will be even further immersed in the Victorian-era holiday theme as they enjoy live carolers and holiday themed treats.
