Pinecrest Gardens transforms into a winter wonderland dotted by thousands of twinkling lights that go up, through, and around the whimsical botanical landscape. This year the botanical garden is adding more sections of sparkling holiday lights and a bigger than last year’s holiday-themed maze in the gardens.

Eat yummy treats, have a signature Pinecrest Gardens cocktail, and enjoy magical Story Time with Mrs. Claus. Stay tuned for special appearances from Santa Claus. On select evenings, admission includes a holiday concert performance in the historic Banyan Bowl.
