The Domes "Music Under Glass"

As the weather gets cold and festivals are long gone, one of Milwaukee's most unusual structures comes alive on Thursday nights through winter.  I love all things plants and to see the domes at night is a great change of pace. 
The Floral Show Dome features a band and the inside walls of the dome light up.  There's seats so you can enjoy the show or walk around and view the displays while being entertained.  Food is available (sandwiches and some desserts, not a huge selection but something to grab while watching the show!) along with a few cocktails and wine. 
The Tropical and Desert domes remain dark with some spotlights and a giant globe.  Beautiful decorations were up for the Day of the Dead among marigolds, an important flower for the holiday.
Last season, my husband and I went opening night to see a friend that works with Streetlife and we look forward to returning this year.  The 2012 lineup is listed on the Milwaukee County Park's web page.
