The 107th annual Holiday Botanical Show is on display in Highland Park through Jan. 6, 2019, at Lamberton Conservatory, 180 Reservoir Ave., Rochester.
“We’ve again decked the halls of our conservatory in the spirit of the season, and I welcome one and all to come enjoy this one-of-a-kind holiday display,” said Cheryl Dinolfo, county executive. “To make your trip to see our seasonal poinsettias, trees, wreaths and lights even easier, we are happy to be offering extended holiday hours on Friday and Sunday evenings through Jan. 6.”
The tradition showcases over 1,000 poinsettias representing over 20 different varieties. A 20-foot lighted Christmas tree is set up in the Highland Bowl.
“As is tradition, our Holiday Botanical Show will feature an 8-foot high poinsettia pyramid, which is a crowd-pleaser year after year,” said Larry Staub, director of the Monroe County Parks Department. “In addition to the festive flora, holiday visitors will be treated to a dazzling display of colorful lights strung throughout the conservatory.”
The conservatory is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and closed on Dec. 25 for Christmas. This year, the show will be open until 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays throughout its run.
Admission is $3 for adults, $2 for seniors and ages 6-18, and free for supervised children ages 5 and younger.
