Minnesota Arboretum Gardens get Decked-Out in Winter Lights! – Chaska, MN

Minnesota Arboretum Winter Lights

Join us on select nights November 17th – January 1st! Stroll through the  gardens decked out in Winter Lights. Enjoy fresh air as you explore outdoor light displays, highlighting flowers, trees and the beauty of nature, on a .75-mile walking route. See the new 16-foot weeping willow tree and walk through the giant apple, which pays tribute to our Horticultural Research Center’s apple research. Stop by s’mores village to warm up near a fire and buy s’mores kits to roast marshmallows.

The Arboretum’s Oswald Visitor Center and Snyder Building will also be decorated for the season — and we’re delighted to announce the return of our 25-foot Poinsettia Tree, created using more than 500 red, white and pink poinsettias. You might also hear holiday tunes from local performers from our live Music Series, offered on select nights.

Special theme nights are available for families and photographers as well as date nights for adults and a New Year’s Eve celebration for all ages.

Minneapolis’ Favorite Rooster is Ready for the Winter!

Minneapolis’ Favorite Rooster is Ready for the Winter!

Every fall, the “Hahn/Cock” is winterized. Due to its stainless-steel skeleton, the sculpture can store water under its blue exterior. When frozen, that water can expand up to 10%, which places the 25-foot-tall Katharina Fritsch piece at risk of cracking.

To combat this, the blue rooster is finished with “weep holes” that allow for drainage. This week, a member of the Walker’s collection team climbed into the belly to unplug debris that has gotten stuck, preparing it for the long, Minnesotan winter ahead.
