GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park is hosting its 18th annual "Christmas and Holiday Traditions Around the World" exhibition.

This year's exhibition runs from Nov.20 through Jan. 6 and highlights the Railway Garden. More than 40 international holiday trees and displays also will be showcased.

During the event, Meijer Gardens transforms into a botanical wonderland with poinsettias, orchids and amaryllis. Horse-drawn carriage rides will be available through the candle-lit Sculpture Park, along with the sounds of carolers and hand bells.

Family art activities, Santa visits and sing-along-trolley rides also are planned.

More than 75,000 visitors are expected to attend.
