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


The LightsAn exhibition of holiday magic returns for a third year of dazzling delight. Bring your festive spirit and experience new light displays, engaging activities, and the merriest of memories. 
Capture the fun at photo stations placed along the walking route – just don’t eat the Candy Land display! There are plenty of other treats available anyway.

Roast s’mores at the fire pits or stay warm with a hot cocoa (adults can add an extra kick!) as you savor the sparkle and cheer.

Grab your friends and family – maybe a scarf and some mittens too. You don’t want to miss your chance to take in the twinkle and make your own magical memories at The Lights.

Cedarhurst’s public buildings are accessible and welcoming to individuals with disabilities, and the museum has made accessibility improvements to its outdoor walking trails. One-third of The Lights one-mile walking route is a paved, blacktop surface, and the remaining two-thirds are an oil, chipped, and packed surface. It can be navigated with wheelchairs, strollers, and wagons, however some motorized devices may have trouble on inclines.
Our goal is for all to experience and enjoy The Lights!

*This year we have scheduled two Accessibility Nights[DEC. 1 and DEC. 29] to offer visitors the opportunity to see The Lights via guide-driven golf cart ride. The carts can accommodate up to 6 people per group, and special “cart ride” tickets must be reserved. (Regular ticket rates apply).
