Come experience the magic of OVER 1 MILLION holiday lights sparkling at Cedarhurst!

Just over the river and through the woods, The Lights will transform the museum 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 – including open lawns, wooded trails, water features, and thoughtful artworks – 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 at The Lights.

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 some mittens, too – and get ready to wrap yourself in the magic of the season at The Lights!
