Olbrich Garden’s Holiday Express: Flower & Model Train Show
December 8 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00am, repeating until December 31, 2017
December 2 thru December 31 (except Christmas Day). Open daily 10:00-4:00 (Closes @ 2:00 on Christmas Eve.).
All aboard for Olbrich’s Holiday Express!
Large-scale model trains wind through a holiday scene overflowing with hundreds of poinsettias and fresh evergreens.
During the show, members of the Wisconsin Garden Railway Society come from all over the state to show off their large-scale model trains. You may see a bullet train, steam train, Santa train, circus train, or freight train, depending on the day.
This year, make sure to don your best cowboy hat when you visit!! Just like in the days of the Wild West, our model trains will cruise through a miner’s gold camp and stop off at the Yellow Rose of Texas Saloon.
Pull up a straw bale around the campfire and enjoy the blooming desert, bright with arid flowers, cacti, agave, and aloe. Mark your calendars and hitch up the wagons – we’re headed West!
