Christmas lights and a festive holiday atmosphere welcomes visitors to Shangri La each December for the annual Christmas Strolls. Visitors can meander through gardens transformed with dazzling light displays and festive, community-decorated Christmas trees lining the pathways of Shangri La as well as wander through the greenhouses adorned with poinsettias and seasonal flowers. The young and the young-at-heart can enjoy a relaxing evening of magical displays.
In addition, each year, contributions of non-perishable food items support those who are less fortunate throughout the Orange community.
Community Decorate-a-Tree Adds Joy to the Christmas Season
Along with the stunning festive holiday displays found throughout Shangri La Gardens, each year members of our community sign up to decorate a Christmas Tree as part of our Community Decorate-a-Tree Event. By signing up to decorate a tree, you’ll contribute to the festive holiday tradition here at Shangri La Gardens, support those in greatest need through the efforts of Orange Christian Services, and continue growing this annual event that brings the Southeast Texas community together.
To sign up, please download the invitation letter and rules and entry form below. Please read the rules and regulations. If you would like to decorate a tree on behalf of your school, business, church, non-profit, civic group, family or just as a group of friends, please complete the form and return it to us by fax, mail or email to help our community celebrate the Christmas season and be a part of the joyous tradition at Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center.
