First Annual Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Everyone enjoyed the Witches Walk so much that we decided to do a Christmas-themed walk!

Our event begins in the Dixie Cafe where you can purchase a specialty Christmas cocktail and then stroll through the gardens to enjoy our spectacular Holiday Decorations. We invite you to take a quick group photo under our beautifully decorated Burnside Oak, the largest in the world. To be followed by a Christmas ladies luncheon in the Carriage House Restaurant.
