See how the Garden glows for the holidays

Holidays at the Garden at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden

BELMONT, N.C. — A pandemic won’t stop Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden from glowing this holiday season.

The garden’s annual Holidays at the Garden event is open now through Jan. 3, 2021.

The show will be a bit smaller than in years past, but there will still be plenty to see, including the popular musically-orchestrated topiary display, blossoming lighted cherry trees and more than 10 acres of colorful cascading lights.

In addition to the holiday lights, there will be food trucks and fire pits for roasting marshmallows.

Because of COVID-19 restrictions, there will not be any live entertainment and Santa won’t be visiting this year. The popular Orchid Tree, featuring more than 300 live orchids, will be on display, but the Orchid Conservatory and Lost Hollow the Children’s Garden will remain closed.
