Friday night found me shivering in the cold outside at Franklin Park Conservatory. I was there with friends to look at the pretty Christmas lights.
It’s called Conservatory Aglow and features thousands of lights throughout the property. You enter through the wonderful rainbow tunnel above.
Then you can meander through lights, through a giant model railroad and even step inside a gingerbread house.
This tree is made with hand blown glass balls.
There is one area inside that’s nicely decorated too. I really wish they did more inside but this was all lovely.
You can warm up by walking through a gingerbread competition and enjoy the rest of the Conservatory which is filled with interesting plants and Dale Chihuly glass art.
It was freezing cold and there were snow flurries in the air, making it even more festive. It was a great night to be out with friends! This spot was my favorite both because it’s pretty and because they play classical music here. It’s like an oasis where you just might meet the man in the moon.

Wow! I wish we had something like that anywhere near here. Love all the colored light!
Yes! I’m lucky to be just 90 minutes away. It’s a bit of a drive for you but I’ve heard the lights at the Denver Botanical Garden are glorious.
Haha. I know! If I ever win the lottery I’ll buy you a helicopter so you can move more quickly through those vast western states of yours!
