VISIT SANTA IN HIS SECRET GARDEN AT HERSHEY GARDENS

Visit Santa and his elves, enjoy music by an open fire and listen to Mrs. Claus tell a story at Santa’s Secret Garden, being held at Hershey Gardens on December 5, 6, 12 and 13, 2014, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Families will be greeted by Santa’s elves as they travel along a path of twinkling lights to discover Santa and his secret garden—a beautiful winter wonderland. Children can craft a winter owl ornament using a pine cone and receive a sapling from Santa himself.  Kids can also join Mrs. Claus for a story, play with “snow” and go on a scavenger hunt. Winter weather creatures from ZooAmerica will also be featured.  

 

Decorations in Santa’s Secret Garden are nature-inspired. Featured greens include the Christmas rose, red and gold twig dogwood, evergreen ferns and colorful perennials.  Other nature-inspired decorations will also be on display, such as dried fruits and vegetables, dried herbs, bird ornaments and woodland critter ornaments.
