Holiday Floral Show to Open at The Domes Nov. 19
The Show Dome will be transformed into a winter forest.
Milwaukee, WI (Nov. 7, 2016) – Not a Creature Was Stirring, the holiday floral show, will open Nov. 19 at 9 a.m. at The Domes, 524 S. Layton Blvd. The show will run through Jan. 1.
Featured plants in the show will be a wide variety of Poinsettias, along with red ‘Miracle’ Amaryllis, ‘Partytime Sangria’ Coleus, ‘Silverleaf Red’ Cyclamen, and ‘Blueberry Thrill’ Pansies.
Rather than having a single tree as a focal point, the Show Dome will be transformed into a winter forest filled with Colorado Blue Spruce, Black Hills Spruce, Balsam Fir, White Fir, and Mugo Pine. Trees will be decorated in a variety of woodland themes and rustic styles.
As visitors explore the wintery woods, they’ll discover nests, burrows, and other homes of forest animals. A fanciful mural will depict the woodland critters celebrating the holidays.
To complement the holiday show, Mr. and Mrs. Claus, and a holiday tree character will make appearances Dec. 4, 10, and 17 from noon–3 p.m.
A holiday musical performance will be presented by The Domes Resident Pianist, Jim William Mooney,
Dec. 18, from 11 a.m.–1 p.m.
Last year over 40,000 people visited the holiday show, one of the most popular shows of the year.
Entrance to the holiday show is included with regular Domes admission. Admission for adults age 18 and over is $7; Milwaukee County Seniors with ID, persons with disabilities, students of any age with ID, and youth age 6-17 are $5. Children 5 and under are admitted for free.
