Events: Holiday Lights at Gaiser Conservatory

Starting this Friday, Dec. 13, Manito Park's Gaiser Conservatory will be all dressed up for the holidays. From Friday through Dec. 22nd, visitors to the Conservatory will be treated to thousands of holiday lights and many poinsettias, mums and other holiday plants.

I love going to this event because it really puts me in the spirit for the holidays. The open house hours will be from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., although it will be prettiest when it's dark outside.

Manito Park is located at 4 W. 21st Ave., on Spokane's South Hill. The event is free.

This weekend (Dec. 14-15), the Friends of Manito will host an open house in the Manito Meeting Room, which is located just east of Gaiser Conservatory. The hours will be from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. and this event is also free. There will be refreshments and plenty of holiday cheer on hand!

I hope you can fit these events into your busy holiday schedule. It's well worth your time.
