Hawaiian-Themed Holiday Floral Show to Open at The Domes
Nov. 22–Jan. 4, 2015.
Milwaukee, WI (Nov. 13, 2014) – Mele Kalikimaka means “Merry Christmas” in Hawaiian and is the theme of this year’s holiday floral show at the Mitchell Park Domes, Nov. 22–Jan. 4, 2015. The Domes, “Milwaukee’s Living Landmark,” is located at 524 S. Layton Blvd.
The centerpiece of the show, a Norfolk Pine nearly 30 feet tall, will be decorated in hues of sea-foam blue, green, and golden sand—reminiscent of the Pacific shores. The tree will be set in a Tiki Garden filled with thousands of tropical flowers including vibrant poinsettias, hibiscus, anthurium, and orchids. The setting is complemented with a coconut palm, pineapple plants, other island ornamentals, and tiki statues. On the overlook, a larger-than-life travel postcard will welcome guests.
For three Saturdays, Santa will be at The Domes. Visitors are invited to bring their cameras to capture a holiday moment, with a floral backdrop of tropical flowers. Hours are: Dec. 6 from, 1:30-3:30 p.m.; Dec. 13 from 11 a.m.–3 p.m.; and Dec. 20 from 10 a.m.–3 p.m., with Mrs. Claus joining Santa from noon-3 p.m.
Holiday show hours are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 27), and Christmas Day (Dec. 25), hours are 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Admission is $7 for adults; $5 for children age 6-17, students of any age with ID, persons with disabilities, and Milwaukee County Seniors age 60 and up with ID; and Free for children under 6.
