Stroll down candlelit trails through the gardens and woods at the Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens' Holiday Luminary Walk. The dates are the three weekends after Thanksgiving.
This fundraiser features a mile of candles, holiday lights, live musical entertainment, Santa Claus in the Depot, horse-drawn wagon rides, hot cider around a campfire and mystical Gnome and Fairy Villages.
Volunteers and staff members are transforming the Arboretum into a wonderland of candles and lights, music and holiday fun. Thousands of candles line the walkways and trails. Holiday lights will be on display from trees, buildings and bridges.
Children will be thrilled to see Santa's Woodland Depot in the Train Garden and chat with him nightly from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
The Luminary Walk will be held from 5 to 9 p.m., three weekends, Friday and Saturday, Nov. 29-30, Dec. 6-7, and Dec. 13-14.
Tickets must be purchased in advance for a specific night. 2019 eTicket is $12 per person; $10 for FOTA Members and First National Bank customers, with promo code; children 5 and younger are free. Purchase tickets online in advance.
