  1. My sons and I went to see this last year, you REALLY do not want to miss it! The gent who makes the houses has been an Island icon from way back. We are so glad to have this great Christmas tradition of seeing the miniature houses and trains in addition to seeing the beautiful grounds of the Bloedel Reserve.
