Join us in 2016 when Brookside Gardens' transforms into a magical winter wonderland illuminated with more than one million dazzling colorful lights! Lights are shaped into hand-crafted art forms of flowers, animals and other natural elements. Bring family and friends along as you stroll from garden to garden enjoying twinkling tree forms, fountains, sparkling snowflakes overhead and more. Don't miss a visit to the Conservatory where you can watch G-Scale model trains wind through a seasonal landscape customized to reflect Montgomery County landmarks. Afterward, warm up inside the Visitors Center while you sip hot cocoa and listen to one of the nightly musical performances.
