Allan Gardens is welcoming the holiday season with its annual Christmas Flower Show.
The yearly event sees festive and colourful plants in the conservatory trimmed in holiday styles, with seasonal plants such as holly, poinsettias and evergreens taking centre stage.
The Allan Gardens conservatory will be open for extended hours on select nights throughout the holiday season, with guests invited to tour the facility by candlelight.
While the venue’s normal hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., it will remain open until 7 p.m. on Dec. 8, 9, 15, 16, 22 and 23.
The festivities will kick off with a special opening day celebration from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2 that will include Victorian carollers, horse and carriage rides through the park and a visit from Father Christmas.
The flower show at Allan Gardens will run alongside a similar event in Centennial Park in Etobicoke and will take place from Dec. 2 through Jan. 7.
