Christmas Show 2019

We visited the Domes last year on New Year's Eve to see the Christmas show. Here are a few images from that visit, from both inside the Show Dome and outside at dusk. This year and last I took many more photos in the Desert and Tropical Domes. I'll share a selection of those in separate posts.

Christmas Show at The Domes

The Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory is known in Milwaukee simply as the Domes. If you live in Milwaukee, chances are you know the Domes well! They are a Milwaukee County treasure. Each year there is a Christmas display in the Show Dome. A family member works there and treated us to a private tour recently. Here are a few images of the poinsettias and other decorations in this year's Christmas display.
