Now that Halloween is over, the holiday season has begun in Cincinnati. And Krohn Conservatory is kicking things off with a new winter floral exhibit: Celestial Holiday.

The conservatory will be transformed into “a glowing winter wonderland surrounded by sparkling lights and shining stars,” per an event description.

Attendees can expect the return of the now-annual model train display, with locomotives zipping through botanical recreations of local landmarks, utilizing material like wood and moss to make mini versions of the spectacular originals. New this year is a replica of Music Hall, created by the local artists at Applied Imagination.

Plants on display will include splashes of red glitter poinsettias, white dusty miller and silver helichrysum icicles.

Celestial Holiday runs 10 a.m-8 p.m. daily from Nov. 5-Jan. 8. Admission is $10 adults, $7 ages 5-17 and free for 4 and under.

Krohn Conservatory is located at 1501 Eden Park Drive, Mt. Adams. More info:  cincinnati-oh.gov/cincyparks.
