For the 27th year, the holiday decorations and festive traditions will be back at the Jardins Frederik Meijer!
From November 23 to January 2, the annual University of Michigan Health-West Christmas Holidays & Traditions exhibit will adorn three indoor gardens with seasonal lights, trees and plants. Volunteers decorated 46 trees to represent countries and cultures around the world, while the Railway Garden will return to entertain visitors.
This year, the exhibit will feature cultures that incorporate sound into their holiday traditions. Gongs, bells, whistles and music will be incorporated into the exhibits.

The Railway Garden will weave model trains through plants and hand-made replicas of buildings in Grand Rapids. Spanning three gardens, visitors will recognize 40 city landmarks and five landmarks from sister cities to Grand Rapids.
