One of St. Louis’s most beloved holiday traditions returns with Gardenland Express, the Garden’s annual holiday flower and train show. Join them this year for a G-scale model railway trip along the Appalachian Trail. Explore the mountains and valleys of Appalachia, with its small towns and rural dwellings. The miniature landscape is bedecked with twinkling lights, holiday trees, colorful poinsettias, and oversized snowflakes. This is a holiday event you won't want to miss!
