At Franklin Park Conservatory

Franklin Park Conservatory has always been a wonderful escape from January's cold temperatures and dreary skies but Central Ohio's amazing indoor garden is turning up the heat this month. The Conservatory is hosting a luau for families from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Jan. 17 and 18. The party is included in the price of admission, which ranges from $6-$13.

Guests can sample tropical treats like bacon-wrapped pineapple or banana-coconut upside down cake ($1 per sample).

A steel drum band will perform during the event at the John F. Wolfe Palm House. The Conservatory is located at 1777 E. Broad St., Columbus 43203.
