11th Annual “Holiday Lights in Bloom”
Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays starting November 29th though December 29th
5 – 8 pm
FREE & open to the public
There may be a chill in the air but the Arboretum will be in “full bloom” with beautiful, garden themed light displays in the forms of flowers, animals and insects. Children, and adults alike, will be charmed as they stroll down paths of lit trees, walk through gardens filled with flowers and “critters”, visit the 9/11 Memorial Garden decorated in patriotic splendor and stop at the water’s edge of a pond created in lights. Be sure to visit this “ever growing” event and make it part of your family’s holiday traditions.Free Hot Cocoa!!! (while supplies last)
The Friends will be offering a wonderful selection of merchandise hand crafted by the Arboretum’s dedicated group of volunteer “elves” that will be ideal for your decorating and gift giving needs. The Arboretum Holiday Boutique offers a beautiful selection of handmade ornaments, wreaths, garland, fresh centerpieces, miniature trees, hand knitted hats and scarves, birdhouses, holiday linens, and honey collected from the Arboretum’s bee hives are just a small sampling of what will be available. If you just want to shop, and skip the light program, the Boutique will open starting November 29th from 2:00PM to 8:00PM and December 1st, 6th, 8th, 13th & 15th from 5:00PM to 8:00PM. And will also be open on December 7th & 14th from 2:00PM to 8:00PM in conjunction with the Holiday Lights in Bloom program. All proceeds raised at the Boutique help fund the beautiful plantings and various educational programs at the Arboretum.
The Arboretum is located within Thomas Bull Memorial Park on State Route 416 in Montgomery and is most easily accessed from the Grove St. entrance to the Park.
