Christmas at Kingwood, the annual celebration of the holidays at Mansfield’s amazing Kingwood Center Gardens, continues through December 30 with displays, lights, music, workshops, and more that will delight the eyes and ears.
Thousands of lights decorate the grounds and walkways leading to the decked halls of a Kingwood Hall decorated by partnering garden clubs and volunteers, to displays of decorated trees and wreaths, and to magical outdoor light displays.
Featured elements of Christmas at Kingwood this year includes:
- The Trail of Lights, with over 200 lighted trees.
- The Tree Walk in the Exhibit Hall and part of the Greenhouse, with 40 trees and wreaths decorated by local businesses.
- The Greenhouse’s special Christmas display and great plant selection including holiday favorites.
- Kingwood Hall with its two story Christmas tree decorated by Kingwood staff, Board, and families; every room on the first and second floors, including the ballroom, library, and dining room given the holiday look by local garden clubs, Kingwood volunteers, and staff.
