Streams of hanging icicle lights tower over displays, lights adorn bushes and a yellow obelisk with red, green and white lights stands high above the Italian Formal Garden terrace.

.

Since the light show began in 1996, it has been a tradition for friends and families to brave the cold and walk along the path under a sea of lights and stars.

.

A sneak peek in November was the first time I experienced the holiday show (don’t shun me, I’m a more recent Janesvillian).

.

The rainy half-hour with Mark Dwyer, the gardens’ director of horticulture, provided flashbacks to winters in Minneapolis as a child when the Anderson family would go to the holiday parade in downtown Minneapolis. Afterward, we would drive along Summit Avenue in St. Paul, my eyes wide with awe as we passed the many mansions covered in lights and winter greenery.

.

With 370,000 lights and countless displays this year, Rotary Gardens’ annual fundraiser is sure to take any attendee back for a holiday memory or two.

.

The show spans 20 acres and brings in a large portion of the gardens’ yearly revenue and attendance, Dwyer said. Last year, 13,500 people were expected for the holiday show, but about 27,000 visited.

.

Colored milk cartons illuminate the path where traffic will flow in one direction this year. The path has been expanded for the third straight year, and this year it is at least 30 to 40 percent longer than before with the new Woodland Walk route, Dwyer said.

.

The addition stretches along the water from the Observation Pier, which has cute little penguins on it, to the Gazebo Garden, where Santa’s sleigh and reindeer are taking off for their next delivery.
