pennsylvania_pittsburgh_winterCombining both blooms and bulbs, the Winter Flower Show and Light Garden opens Friday (November 25, 2016) at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, One Schenley Park, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Built around a whimsical “Snow Day at Phipps” theme, the changing exhibit rooms will feature topiary penguins, bears and reindeer frolicking in showcases of artful LED lights, decorated fir trees, whimsical props, colorful poinsettias, aromatic paperwhites, showy amaryllis and more. From snowball fights and ice skating to cuddly blanket forts, the displays will revive the wonder of a winter’s day of childhood play in guests of every age.

Adding to the festive atmosphere, the Outdoor and Discovery Gardens will sparkle with luminous orbs, trees and fountains, as well as a brand new tunnel of lights designed to imitate a twinkling winter sky.

A Garden Railroad will be on view too, taking you on a trip through 200 years of Pittsburgh history, brought to life with interactive buttons for children to push, and miniature living plants, shrubs and trees.

The Winter Flower Show runs through January 8, 2017. Admission is $17.95 for adults, $16.95 for seniors and students, and $11.95 for children (ages 2 – 18). Members and kids under 2 enter free. Daily hours for Winter Flower Show are 9:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. and 5 to 11 p.m. for the Winter Light Garden.

Note that Phipps closes at 5 p.m. December 24, 2016, and reopens at 9:30 a.m. December 26. Winter Light Garden may be subject to temporary closures in the event of heavy rains or other inclement weather conditions.
