Discover the magic of being home for the holidays aboard the Cincinnati Choo Choo at Krohn Conservatory!  The 2017 Holiday Show will bring you back in time to holiday festivities in the city and remind you of the best family traditions.  The conservatory showroom will be filled with ruby red poinsettias, fanciful evergreens, cyclamen, amaryllis, and more of your favorite holiday plants.  Delightful botanical architecture surrounded by many miles of train track will be created in natural components by the Applied Imagination team. The train display and historical buildings created by Applied Imagination will immerse our visitors in the sights and sounds of chugging trains and splashing water, with trains overhead and trolleys at your feet.  Bring the family to Krohn Conservatory and continue to make great holiday memories!

The traditional large evergreen tree donated by Dixie View Nursery will be decorated by the wonderful Krohn Crafters with handmade natural ornaments and ready for viewing on December 1.
