A bonsai exhibit will be featured once again at Hershey Gardens during “Bonsai: Living Art of the Susquehanna Bonsai Club.” The annual exhibit opens Friday, Oct. 7, and runs through Sunday, Nov. 6, 2016, from 9 :00am to 5:00pm daily.
The exhibit features a variety of uniquely shaped trees, in addition to information on bonsai, what they are and how they are cultivated. Susquehanna Bonsai Club provides the seasonal exhibit to Hershey Gardens. The exhibit is located in the former seasonal Butterfly House.
The word “bonsai” refers to the ancient Japanese art form of growing miniature, ornamentally-shaped trees or shrubs in small pots or trays.
The bonsai exhibit is included in general admission to Hershey Gardens. General admission is $12.50 for visitors ages 13-61, $11.50 for seniors (ages 62 and up), and $9.00 for juniors (ages 3-12); children under age three are free. Hours are 9:00am to 5:00pm daily.
