For the holiday season, the Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens is hosting the traditional Holiday Luminary Walk.
This popular Kansas City holiday event includes lighted trails through the gardens, holiday music, light displays, gnome and fairy villages, horse-drawn wagon rides and more. There is also an option for a more peaceful adults-only night on Dec. 2.
Masks are required and visitors are asked to keep an appropriate distance from those outside their household. More details on changes being made to this year’s Holiday Luminary Walk can be found on the event site.
