The Idaho Botanical Gardens are decked out in their holiday best and the staff there can't wait to welcome the brave men and woman of our United States military to enjoy an evening on the house.

On Tuesday, December 4 all military members, families, veterans and retirees are invited to wander through nearly 400,000 twinkling lights for FREE! Simply show a military ID or proof of the service at the admission gate that evening to take advantage of Military Appreciation night.  Families will get to spend quality time together, photos with Santa and cookies and cocoa while supplies last.

Gates open at 6 p.m. with the last admission at 9 p.m.

The event is made possible for these brave men and women who put their lives on the line to protect our country and freedom by Mountain America Credit Union.
