Allen Gardens Sign in winter

Winter in Wisconsin is not the time you would think of to visit a garden, but Allen Centennial Gardens thought differently! It was time to light things up and celebrate!  Last year we went to two events at other gardens doing the same thing.  In September 2015 we went to Olbrich Botanical Garden‘s GLEAM, and in December went to Janesville’s Rotary Garden Holiday Light Show, both beautiful and a lot of fun!  This garden had to get in on the act too!

It was warm for February, about 45 degrees with the strong winds finally dying down. The event opened at 6:30 and it was crowded!  They had to let in people a few at a time to prevent gridlock.

There were also three fire pits on the lawn where people gathered to warm up or roast marshmallows for S’mores. Hot cocoa was also available. It was now our turn to go in, join us as we walk through a winter garden at night. The moon joined in the fun too!

This was the gardens first LUMINOUS event, we hope there will be more in the future!
