🎄The Lights: An Exhibition of Holiday Magic at Cedarhurst

Just over the river and through the woods, The Lights will transform the Cedarhurst campus into a winter wonderland with 10 dazzling light features installed along a 3/4 mile walking loop designed to highlight the best of the Cedarhurst campus. From distinct building architecture to the beautiful sculpture park, there is no better setting to experience the magic of the holidays.

Immerse yourself in the 50-foot Tunnel of Illumination that guides visitors into the wooded walking trails. Feel the festivity emulate from the Fluer de Lights, a floating light installation on the Cedarhurst pond. And enjoy a Classic Christmas at the historic Mitchell House, decorated in traditional fashion. These are only a sampling of the sparkle that’s in store.

Capture the memories at fun photo stations placed along the walking route – just don’t eat the Gingerbread men! There are plenty of other treats available anyway. Roast some s’mores at the fire pits or stay warm with a hot cocoa (adults can add an extra kick!) as you take in the twinkle.

Grab your friends and family – maybe a scarf and mittens, too – and wrap yourself in the magic of the season at The Lights: An Exhibition of Holiday Magic at Cedarhurst. We can’t wait to celebrate our inaugural season with you!
