Holiday cheer comes to a couple Davenport parks.  It's officially time to get into the holiday spirit.  Some years it comes easier than others but as Buddy the Elf would say, "The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear."

The second best way is to immerse yourself in everything Christmas!  The lights, the sounds, the music all comes together for you in a couple locations in Davenport.

Back again for 2021, the Fejervary Holiday Lights, a show of multi-colored lights coordinated to music.  The show will kick off Saturday, November 27 and will run every night through Sunday, January 2, 2022 from 5:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. every night at the Fejervary Learning Center.

The light shows last approximately 15 minutes with a show starting every 30 minutes. Join the fun from the warmth of your car as this event is a park and watch event. You can tune into 107.5 on your car radio for the full stereo experience.

At Vander Veer Botanical Park white lights illuminate walkways throughout the park, the rose garden, and the Grand Allée. In the Conservatory, the annual Poinsettia Show, a holiday spectacular featuring countless poinsettias and a multitude of lights as well as Gingerbread Village holiday display, will open to the public on Saturday, November 27 and will run through Sunday, January 9.

The Conservatory is open Tuesday-Friday and Sunday 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and Saturday 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. (extended Saturday hours end December 18). The Conservatory is closed on Mondays. By the way there is no admission fee for the Conservatory.
