The Dallas Arboretum’s 12 Day of Christmas exhibit is open through January 8, 2016. This exhibit is a fun way to experience the Arboretum during the fall/winter season, and a beautiful walk outside! Twelve 25-foot Victorian gazebos are filled with costumed characters and whimsical animals depicting each of the twelve days in the famous Christmas carol (the original version, not the “…such a pain to me” version). Each gazebo is animated.
You can go during the day, or experience this exhibit at night when it’s all lit up (and so are a bunch of trees). If you’re parent, I didn’t think just going to see this exhibit was a big enough draw for my boys, but add this to visiting the Children’s Adventure Garden and my kids are definitely interested.
