Feast on Holiday Fun at the 2013 Gardenland Express Show

Feast on Holiday Fun at the 2013 Gardenland Express Show
Every year, Garden staff and volunteers work diligently to create our annual Gardenland Express Holiday Flower and Train Show exhibit. This exciting landscape delights visitors of all ages, with its display of G-scale trains, plentiful holiday-themed flora, and festive decorations.

The theme for the 2013 show is titled “Gathering for the Feast,” tying into our Garden-wide Foodology celebration by showcasing some of the many plants we eat during the holiday season. Popular fruit- and vegetable-based dishes adorn ornate floral tablescapes, while larger-than-life animated creatures appear throughout the scenery gathering food for their own feasts.

Join us this holiday season for a memorable show, running from November 23 through January 5.
