The holiday season brings a number of special celebrations to Green Bay. If your group visits the area in November or December, consider including some of these special attractions and events on your itinerary.

Garden of Lights — During November and December, the Green Bay Botanical Garden is illuminated with 250,000 Christmas lights. Groups can visit the garden in the evening for a self-guided walking tour or take a horse-drawn wagon ride through the exhibit.

Polar Express — The National Railroad Museum brings the classic “Polar Express” story to life during November and December. The events feature an evening train ride and a dramatic reading of the classic children’s book.

Heritage Hill Christmas — At Heritage Hill State Historical Park, staff and interpreters re-create a historic holiday celebration during the month of December. Visitors can enjoy vintage shadow plays, music, dancing, holiday baking, crafts, storytelling and wagon rides.

•  Holiday Victorian Tea — Hazelwood Historic House, a Greek Revival home built in the 1800s, is decorated in traditional holiday fashion during December. Groups can arrange to have a special holiday tea in this Victorian setting.

“A Frank’s Christmas” — Meyer Theater stages this locally created holiday musical comedy throughout December. The show takes place inside a beautifully restored historic theater building.
