The 2013 Experience

The favourite illuminated displays from last year are back - the multi-coloured lights on the huge sequoia tree by the carousel, the tree-wraps in the Farmhouse orchard, the lacy white lights on the maple tree near Hill Street, and warm-white lights across the bridge.


NEW - Create your own magical holiday show with sound-reactive lights at the bandstand. Make a noise then watch the lights transform. Over 400 lights twinkle and change colours in response to sound. Come try it out!

There are more shimmering lights to enjoy this year. Look for a welcoming new display just inside the Main Gate, the lighted stars and spheres on the Beech tree near Elworth House, and an enchanted path between Elworth and the Bandstand.

Enjoy the new menagerie of transformed Eco-sculptures this season. They're decoratively lit and beautifully adorned. Look for a grouping of eagles with their artist-made playable instruments. The cows, in the meadow, are joined by eight lit over-sized maids-a-milking sculptures. The bears are back wearing their knit wope sweaters.

Stroll through the streets of the Village to enjoy the traditional sights and sounds of Christmases past-wreaths, cedar swags and seasonal displays. There's something for everyone-festive entertainment, a craft for children and a special Scavenger Hunt based on The Twelve Days of Christmas. Also, enjoy the smells and tastes of the baking in the Farmhouse every Sunday.

Visitors can enjoy a lunch, dinner (during late night openings) or special treat in the Ice Cream Parlour.
