I visited this place last night, I attend the "12 Christmas days at night". It was the most beautiful Christmas exhibition I have ever seen. If you like Christmas and nature, you must attend this exhibition. The place is gorgeous.

Very beautiful inside. Highly recommended during Fall. Try to book parking online so you pay $8 instead of $15 on the spot.

Yes, the ticket price includes the concert. You can bring a blanket or lawn chair. Many people bring in a cart with food and drinks for their family. It's a very pleasant family atmosphere.
