If you’re looking for an incredible holiday light display to put you in the Christmas spirit, you can’t beat Winter Lights at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. (In case you weren’t aware– as I wasn’t– the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum serves as a research center and extension of the University of Minnesota’s College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences.)
And its big light display, Winter Lights, is returning as a walking tour for the 2021 holiday season (after having been a drive-thru event in 2020.)
Actually, that’s incorrect.
Winter Lights isn’t just a single holiday light display, it’s actually 16 different holiday light displayswhich you can walk through as you sip hot chocolate or apple cider and get your fa-la-la-la-la on! Here’s how the Arboretum describes the Winter Lights 2021:
Get outside and enjoy the crisp, fresh air of a winter evening as you experience 16 outdoor light displays, featuring flowers, nature and winter fun, on an accessible, stroller-friendly walk that’s just over a half-mile. Warm-up midway through the walking tour at a bonfire and roast marshmallows over the fire — s’mores packages will be for sale. Artist Jennifer Hedberg’s luminescent ice sculptures will also be part of the display. Embrace all that a Minnesota winter has to offer!
Winter Lights is set to open for the 2021 holiday season on Thursday, November 18th and will run through January 2nd, 2022. (Specifically, November 19-24, 26-28;
December 3-5, 10-12, 17-23, 26-30; and January 1-2.) Tickets cost $15 (they’re free for kids 15 and under) go on sale Friday, November 5th. (Unless you’re already an Arboretum member, then they’re already on sale.)
