Holiday cheer floods the 2022 Meadowlark’s Winter Walk of Lights all season long. Through the beginning of January, Meadowlark Botanical Garden transforms into a winter wonderland with thousands of twinkling lights twisting around tree trunks and shaped into festive scenes.

The Winter Walk of Lights opens around dusk every night (even on holidays), inviting guests to walk through its glowing gates and explore on foot. Along the way, you’ll encounter colorful polar bears from the North Pole, massive holiday lanterns filled with magical fairies, and arches of lights big enough to walk through. You’ll also find ample holiday refreshments—think hot chocolate (with Bailey’s-optional for adults), hot soft pretzels and other fares from local food trucks, and s’mores that you can roast fresh over crackling fires. Dress warmly and grab your tickets in advance ($5+) for a chosen date to ensure there’s room for you and your crew in the winter wonderland. The tickets are valid for any time between the hours of 5:30 and 10 p.m. on your chosen evening.
