Your New Holiday Tradition

The holidays are right around the corner which means snowy nights, warm fires, sweet aromas and family fun. What are your favorite traditions? Perhaps decorating gingerbread houses, skating on ice rinks, hunting for the perfect Christmas tree or baking holiday cookies?

Get Ready for your New Holiday Tradition

Walking in a Winter Wonderland!

Some of you may remember the whimsical Walking in a Winter Wonderland exhibit that took center stage in the Young Building during the 2012 Big E. The inaugural display was decorated to a “T” with a forest of trimmed trees, lights and themed Christmas décor. To top it off, there was even a light snowfall.

We are excited to announce that the ornate display is returning to Eastern States Exposition for a special holiday production this winter season. Walking in a Winter Wonderland will be presented in the New England Center from November 16 to January 5 and it will be more spectacular than ever!

Prepare to be whisked away as you enter a life-size, winter snow globe. The display is sure to dazzle and amaze you with five themed rooms to tour – Wintery White Snow Queen, Vintage Glamour, Holiday Tradition, Sweet Treats and Victorian Romance.

After walking through the exhibit, capture a lasting memory or get a picture for your holiday greeting cards at the Green-Screen Photo Studio. Pose with the Eiffel Tower or other popular destinations when you select a travel theme or stick with a classic holiday background. Before you leave with your new memorabilia, peruse the Wonderland Gift Shop where you’ll find unique holiday gifts, ornaments and home décor!

No matter what the weather is outside, snow flurries are always in the forecast when you come to Walking in a Winter Wonderland. Mark your calendars for your new holiday tradition this season!
