Choo! Choo! Olrich’s Holiday Express has pulled into Olbrich Botanical Gardens now through December 31, 2011. The annual show displays large-scale model trains, vibrant poinsettias, and lush evergreens.
Scattered throughout the show you will also find handcrafted birdhouses and stained glass panels. The whimsical birdhouses were hand-crafted by local artists, and glass artists from the Vinery Stained Glass Studio created 14 beautiful glass panels featuring an array of native birds.
Members of the Wisconsin Garden Railway Society bring their trains from all over Wisconsin. The trains may change depending on the day you see the show.
The show is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; however, Olbrich will close at 2 p.m. on December 24 and will be closed all day on December 25.
