Rhiannon was at the Lego Exhibit at Red Butte Garden! We know you guys love Legos! So here’s the scoop.
There are 14 Lego sculptures all over Red Butte Garden Garden. We visited the “Opening Event” on June 2nd to take a look at these sculptures and I would have to say, it’s pretty impressive!
Flowers are in full bloom at Red Butte Garden and there is SO MUCH GREEN everywhere!
We had a lot of fun exploring the pond, the children’s garden, and the Rose Garden. Since we were there on “Opening” day we also got a chance to take advantage of some of the lego activities as well, like building race cars, and parachuting lego figurines from bridges.
Red Butte Garden is a great place for little legs to burn some energy and to take in the garden scenery. Many people brought their own lunch and Red Butte Garden has plenty of shaded corners with tables and benches were one could easily just sit, take in the beauty, and enjoy lunch.
Set aside from the Lego Exhibit Red Butte Garden has a lot of fun things going on too. It is one of my favorite places in the summer time, mostly because of their concert series, nothing like an outdoor summer concert, or their FREE film series. That’s right, they also host the Sundance Institute Film Series which are FREE. You can’t beat the venue. :) You can find more information about this on their website.
Red Butte Garden also has a spring garden sale, summer camps for children, Fall/Halloween Festivities, and wreath making courses around Christmas time. Apparently they also host a camping party, where families can bring their tents and sleep on the lawn too. It’s there way of inviting people to see what the Garden is like at night! They provide have s’mores, games, crafts, and a catered breakfast.
Generally, admission is normally, 14$ for adults and 7$ for children 17 and under. University of Utah students get in for free and there are discounted and free days throughout the year too.
During the summer Red Butte Garden has what is called “Monday Family Night,” on JUNE 4, JULY 9 & AUG 6 @ 6-8PM. There are live performances and Italian Ice (Duke’s Italian Ice). It’s a great way to spend the evening. The cool summer air, amongst the greenery and flowers is a pretty nice way to end the day.
We will probably be there are family nights so if you see us, SAY HI! :D
