Memphis doesn't traditionally get a lot of snow, so Santa and his elves at the Memphis Botanic Garden give us the gift of a winter wonderland every holiday season with Holiday Wonders. From 'Snowy Nights' in My Big Backyard, the children's play area and garden at the MBG, to a festival of old-growth trees lit up for the season, to a family friendly but definitely romantic lounge called Under the Stars, there's something for everyone at this wintery wonderland. Themed lighting, a musical light show, gently falling snow, carolers, holiday crafts and treats are just the beginning of the magical experience; kids can also play inside a giant snow globe and impress the crowd with their design skills at the giant Light Bright display. If things get truly chilly, which is definitely likely to happen, then you can warm up with hot cocoa around the fire pits.
