ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) ----- The holiday cheer across the Stateline continues with the Nicholas Conservatory flipping the switch as its lights go “All Aglow” this weekend.
Surrounded by the greenery, visitors can explore the sparkling holiday lights, woven into some of the conservatory's more beautiful floral displays.
Kicking off this weekend, eager Christmas lovers can also take a ride on the All Aglow Express, putting a unique spin on a yuletide classic.
"It's kind of a takeoff on the Polar Express, people board our trolley at our South parking lot, head up to the North Pole, where they experience the Polar Express story being read, hot chocolate, a cookie, making s'mores, and then they come back to the campus all lit up," said Joy Weyrauch.
Visitors can check out the exhibit Tuesdays through Sundays from now until January 5th.
