Snowy Nights

Last date was Saturday, December 30th, 2017 from 4:45pm to 9:00pm (CT)


Snowy Nights in My Big Backyard is designed to give everyone in the family a chance to enjoy the winter weather and celebrate the holiday season with light displays and seasonal activities. There’s always “snow” in My Big Backyard – even if Mother Nature didn’t supply it – as well as interactive winter fun and games for families to enjoy.

Families and friends gather around firepits on the patio, sipping hot cocoa and roasting marshmallows for s'mores. The Giant Light Bright, made completely of recycled materials, became one of the most popular engagement spots in Memphis last winter, and children could not get enough of the "faux snow" in the Snow Globe play tent.

Volunteers will help create a fun holiday environment!
