Step into a dazzling dreamland when Pinecrest Gardens transforms into a whimsical wonderland with thousands of twinkling lights. Embark on a journey deep into our lower garden and enter an enchanted forest fit for a fairytale. On select nights, activities include a pajama party in paradise, live holiday performances, and shopping at our seasonal gift bazaar. Children will be mesmerized by a tree adorned with glittering lights that dance to the rhythms of holiday music, a photo with Santa, or an encounter with a storyteller. Grownups can toast to the holidays with a festive signature cocktail or attend a beer-tasting night. And everyone will want to indulge in a selection of tasty treats. Mark your calendars for a sparkling experience that will delight your family and light up your night.
