The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in Chaska has made more times available for its drive-through winter light experience.
The Arb, which had to cancel its Winter In Bloom walking light tour due to Gov. Tim Walz's executive order, switched things up to host a Winter Lights Drive-Through Experience instead. The event runs now through Jan. 17.
After technical issues with online ticket sales earlier this week, the Arb said on Facebook Thursday that it has reconfigured Winter Lights tickets, which means more December and January dates are available.
Tickets, which are only available online here, are for a specific date and time (you can arrive at any point during your reservation time). Everyone in your vehicle must have a ticket, and you can't buy them at the Arb. Tickets are $10 for members and $15 for non-members, while children age 15 and younger are free.
The drive-through, which takes about 15-30 minutes when you're driving at the suggested 5 mph speed limit, boasts a 14-foot, 3D apple made of lights, an ice sculpture from artist Jennifer Hedberg, a waterfall of water lilies, and more. Here's a map of the route:
Due to the governor's executive order, indoor buildings will be closed and food and drinks won't be available (you can pack your own snacks and non-alcoholic beverages, though). A portable restroom will be available.
