Holiday Fun!

For some Christmas cheer, let's go see the lights at Stowe Botanical Garden in Belmont.  Here's event detail from their website: More than 600,000 lights will illuminate the Garden entrance, roadway, Visitor Pavilion and main gardens. These spectacular evenings will include old fashioned model train displays, carriage rides, holiday carols, and a guest favorite, the spectacular 16-foot-tall Orchid Tree featuring more than 300 orchids. Hot chocolate, holiday music and shopping at The Garden Store completes the holiday experience at the Garden.  

Here's a link to the event:

We'll meet in the parking lot at 5, the garden closes at 9.  Admission is $12. 

If you want to attend but can't get there by 5, let me know.

    What a great place to get into the Christmas spirit! The gardens with lights were lovely plus they had trains and music and of course the spectacular orchid tree!

    As a reminder, since some people can't get there until 5:30, we'll plan to go in then instead of at 5.

    Yep, I know, I was there last year. Beautiful, beautiful, orchid tree. Ya'll, please remember however, that it costs $12.00 dollars for adults to get in (I'm not sure whether they upped the price this year). At any rate, dressing warm and bringing some cash may be a good idea.

    For those interested, we'll go to eat after we tour the gardens, likely to Center Street Tavern in Cramerton.

    Hi Cathy, I am not sure I can make it by 5 pm either but I will try to get there as close as traffic lets me :)

    I guess I'll be driving myself from Rock Hill and meet you all there. I hope to make it by 5 but I don't know for sure.

    Hey Cathy, it's a bit difficult to get there by 5, can we make it 5:30?

    First event! Unable to make it by 5. Have my own transportation.

    If we get 10, I'll see if we can get a group rate, which is $10 instead of $12. The rate is also reduced to $10 if you are a AAA member.

    If I'm not mistaken, if you have a party of 10 or more, there's a discount.
