It might seem hard to believe after the recent run of unseasonably warm weather, but Winter Garden aGlow already is back for another run. After countless hours hanging more than 300,000 lights, staffers will unveil the multicolored annual holiday tradition on Thanksgiving. Grab a hot chocolate, squeeze your loved one’s mittened hand and soak up the sights along the 15-acre Idaho Botanical Garden’s pathways. You’ll also find the Holiday Express (a cool outdoor model train), plus local choirs and Santa on select nights.
6 to 9:30 p.m. daily (last admission at 8:45 p.m.), Nov. 24 through Jan. 1 (closed Nov. 29-Dec. 1 for parties), Idaho Botanical Garden, 2355 N. Penitentiary Road, Boise. $8 general, $4 children 5-12 and garden members, free for ages 4 and younger. Admission $2 more Fridays-Saturdays. idahobotanicalgarden.org.
