Each year in December Shangri La hosts Dreaming of a Green Christmas, a fun-filled day to celebrate the holiday season with Christmas activities ranging from meeting with Santa and Mrs. Claus to creating holiday decorations.
Throughout the day, visitors can stroll through Shangri La’s gardens to enjoy beautiful community-decorate Christmas trees along with other seasonal decorations and flowers. The Here We Grow! Children’s Garden is transformed into a charming “Candyland” with a bright, colorful gingerbread house.
Enjoy Evening Christmas Strolls on select dates throughout the month!
