“Under the Big Top”
Winter Showcase Exhibit
January 8-April 17, Public hours
Come one, come all to the greatest circus Garden in town! Imagine yourself as part of the spectacle and attempt great feats of derring-do including acrobatics and tightrope walking. Join the Side Show when posing as a Strong Man or Bearded Lady. Marvel at exotic topiary animals and astonishing plant oddities. This winter, everyone is invited to go to the circus and “clown around” under the Conservatory’s Botanical Big Top.
