New York Botanical Garden Hosts Their 2021 Winter Wonderland Ball

The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) hosted their annual Winter Wonderland Ball. Nearly 400 of New York’s most fashionable society insiders made the annual pilgrimage to the Bronx for a festive, fashionable evening. The Winter Wonderland Ball is one of New York City’s most fashionable holiday parties, with a wintry cocktail reception followed by dinner and dancing with one of the city’s most prominent DJs, Mei Kwok. The celebrated Holiday Train Show® twinkled amid a magical miniature landscape of New York landmarks enlivened by trains, bridges, and tracks—a beloved NYBG tradition for decades. Guests whose generosity helped raised funds for the Garden’s Children Education program were treated to GLOW, a colorful 1.5-mile lightscape that breathtakingly illuminates NYBG’s historic landscape.
