Christmas Time At Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens *Read Details*

Christmas is a time for reflecting on the birth of Christ and enjoy all things wonderful about this holiday. Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens is beautiful already but adding the Christmas decorations and lights puts it over the top!

Join us for an early dinner at a local favorite, Twin Tops Fish Camp (4574 S. New Hope Rd. Gastonia, NC) at 4:30 pm.  (http://twintopsfishcamp.com/)

After dinner, we will head to the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens (6500 S. New Hope Rd. Belmont, NC) to enjoy the holiday lighting. Once we reach the gardens, feel free to go at your own leisure, taking in the sights and sounds. There is live entertainment and I've even heard rumor of a fire pit and roasting marshmallows.

For those of you wanting to meet just at the gardens, the estimated arrival time is 6:30 but please know that could change. I will try to make a post once we leave the restaurant.

Admission:

$12 per adult ($2.00 discount for AAA members)

$11 per senior (60+)

$6 per child and garden member.

For more information on the gardens, please visit:

*This is an outdoor event so it will be dependent on the weather conditions. Please be sure to check back Saturday for any updates/cancellations*

    Hi Julia, I am not going to make it tonight...behind in my Christmas projects! Thanks for all you do and have a great time. I will miss seeing you!

    Looks like the rain is going to cooperate today for us. Just bundle up and bring an umbrella just in case! Some may want to carpool but the gardens are just about 5 minutes or so from the restaurant. Last but not least, to those of you who can't make it, you will be missed but hope to see you at one of out annual Christmas/Anniversary parties!
