Model trains wind their way through a miniature village set among a colorful pallet of poinsettias and Princettias.

An old-fashioned steam engine and freight trains traverse through a floral display arranged in artistic splashes of color. This year’s show has a pink and white theme, featuring varieties of poinsettia, such as Luv U Pink, Merlot, Ice Punch, and Infinity Polar.

The village, comprised entirely of natural materials including willow, spruce and birch woods, features a variety of Chicago-style homes and famous buildings such as the neighborhood bungalow, Chicago Theatre and Chicago Water Tower Place.
