'Snow Village' at Elm Bank a new holiday must-see

By Sue Scheible of the Patriot Ledger.

The Massachusetts Horticultural Society has a new holiday special through Dec. 14 at its annual Festival of Lights at Elm Bank Reservation in Wellesley.

The Snow Village is an elaborate and magical creation including trains, village scenes with moving children, skaters and other characters, Santa climbing a ladder, and Boston scenes including a model of Fenway Park.

This isn't just for kids -- groups of seniors have been coming to see it also on days when it normally would be closed. A group from Milton Elderly Housing is scheduled to visit next week.
