The Garden Christmas Light Displays At McCrory Gardens In South Dakota Is Pure Holiday Magic
You have heard the song a million times, but have you
really ever gone “walking in a winter wonderland”? While the snow atop the Black Hills may look and feel super enchanting (because, well, they really are!), there is nothing that beats the walking in a winter wonderland that is the garden Christmas light displays at McCrory Gardens In South Dakota:
Running Saturday, December 7th through Tuesday, December 31st (2019) is the one-of-a-kind McCrory Gardens Garden Glow!
Located in Brookings, the McCrory Gardens are housed on the campus of South Dakota State University and consist of 25+ acres of display gardens and an additional 45 acres of arboretum, all of which are made even more beautiful amidst the thousands of colorful lights.
Taking place every night (minus Christmas Eve and Christmas Day), the Garden Glow is home to storybook-like displays...
...Enchanting places to sit back and take it all in...
...And, arguably, the best holiday photo ops in the state.
In addition to the lights, the Garden Glow offers a number of other festive events, including trolley rides, visits with Santa, tasty hot chocolate, and more.
