Railroad to Wonderland Garden Train Show at the Domes
Winter at the Mitchell Park Domes means the annual train show! Last year’s train theme, The Great Train Robbery, was pretty perfect. I wasn’t sure that an Alice in Wonderland theme would be as neat. But as always, the Domes outdid themselves and put so much effort into every little detail. Highlights include, but are not limited to, a real-life sized tea party and Queen’s Croquet-Ground. You’ll visit the Mad Hatter, White Rabbit, Humpty Dumpty, Queen of Hearts, Cheshire Cat, and more. I really love the aesthetic of this show. Having trains run through Alice in Wonderland is so much fun.
Mirroring Alice in Wonderland, the Domes staff chose plants ranging in size from miniature to large than life. The red and white landscape features pansies, azaleas, petunias, and cyphea as well as two flamingo-shaped topiaries made of hypoestes.
