The Bonnet House Museum & Gardens, one of South Florida’s most picturesque venues, is set to ring in the most wonderful time of the year. Beginning Friday, December 2, five nights of Holiday Magic will transform the 35-acre subtropical estate into a holiday wonderland for the entire family to enjoy!
The house and grounds will be lit up and sparkling and all the trees, wreaths, and centerpieces will be designed to delight as well as available for sale. Decide on your favorites as you take a self-guided tour of the house during this rare nighttime opportunity….
Kids will be able to meet best friends POMP, SNOW & CIRQUEumstance, along with new characters from the award-winning storybook and upcoming musical created by Broadway director and Cirque Dreams founder Neil Goldberg.
You might want to make sure you’re on your best behavior for this too, since Santa Claus will be in attendance all five nights at the charming holiday festivity.
Photo ops with Santa will be available, as well as other fun entertainment from his elves to Christmas storytelling, strolling carolers, Gin & Jazz featuring Davis & Dow and The Yuletide Carolers.
You can expect a festival of trees, sounds of the season, interactive activities, book readings and plenty of opportunities to capture family portraits and overall holiday cheer. And, of course, fine food and libations. There will also be holiday arrangement classes with Victoria Park Flower Studio on the Bonnet House Veranda on Dec. 7-8!
Built in 1920 as the winter retreat of the Birch and Bartlett family, the Bonnet House is a fanciful blend of art, architecture, history, and ecology. The historical property preserves the natural setting of South Florida, situated on what is one of the last examples of a native barrier island habitat in the region.
