My family couldn’t be more excited about this event!  So many of our favorite characters will be on the ice for Treasure Trove.  We had an absolute blast at the Disney on Ice:  Dare to Dream Event last year & I know Treasure Trove will be just as wonderful! And I LOVE the fact that it’s at The Arena at Gwinnett Center … so easy to get to from Forsyth County.

Tickets are ON SALE Now!

During these Repotting Days, novice gardeners and expert growers alike can ask questions and learn how to perfectly repot with Pike employees. Potting soil and other necessary tools will be provided; customers can also choose to bring their own pots and plants.

Metro Atlanta Pike locations include:

Acworth
