Show at The Domes

The Show Dome is transformed into a winter forest filled with spruces, firs and pines – decorated in a variety of woodland themes and rustic styles. Featured plants include poinsettias, amaryllis, coleus, cyclamens, and pansies.

  As visitors explore the wintery woods, they discover nests, burrows, and other homes of forest animals. A fanciful mural depicts the woodland critters celebrating the holidays.
