The Phipps Conservatory becomes a glowing winter wonderland with a breathtaking display that will light up your Christmas season. This year’s show features brighter lights, bigger trees, and all-new indoor displays.

Among the exciting cool additions is a newly renovated Palm court, which has color-changing lighting that bursts with color. An interesting thing about the show is that it’s good for the environment. All the lights are energy-efficient.

And who doesn’t love holiday trees?! Phipps goes all out this year with trees made of tropical plants and succulents leading up to an impressive 22 foot Fraser fir near a reflecting pond. Now that’s a sight!

Along the way you can check out ten ice towers which resemble frosted window panes, a rotating tree on a music box, and a grand finale which takes you beneath a decorated tree with Victorian-inspired gifts. There’s also a huge display of red poinsettias as well!

If you’re feeling extra festive you can enhance your glow experience with some hologram glasses, which reveal snowflakes when gazing up at the LED displays. The glasses cost $6 and include a coupon good for free popcorn or a pretzel at the Cafe Phipps Holiday Hut.
