Conservatory’s holiday lights are on

More than 30,000 lights glitter and blink at the Manito Park Gaiser Conservatory’s holiday light display, which opens today. It’s put on by the Friends of Manito and the Spokane Parks and Recreation Department and it runs through Dec. 19. The Conservatory is open daily from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. but the best viewing hours are after dusk.
The holiday display also features dozens of seasonal poinsettias in many colors and variations.
The Friends of Manito have an open house on Dec. 11 and 12 in the Manito Meeting Room (just east of the Gaiser Conservatory) from 4 – 7:30 p.m. both days. Refreshments will be served. Both events are free.

Info about the Friends of Manito from the Parks Department: Founded in 1990, The Friends of Manito (TFM) is a non-profit group that works to support Manito Park by providing funds for improvements for the general enhancement of Manito Park.  Three major plant sales are given each year with approximately 100 volunteers working for months before to prepare the plant material - making the events the premier plant sales for Spokane gardeners.  Throughout the year, TFM also offers educational programs to further promote the community’s use and enjoyment of Manito Park.  Since their beginning, The Friends of Manito has contributed over $525,000 to Manito Park.

About this blog

Welcome to the South Perry neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last four years I’ve lived on South Perry Street.

I love the neighborhood so when time came to pick an area for The Spokesman-Review’s first neighborhood blog, the choice was simple: South Perry is where it’s at.
