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

The Lights: An exhibition of holiday magic is back for a second year at Cedarhurst, and this year’s program boasts even more magic.

Favorite light features from the inaugural year return, and they are joined by five new additions shining bright along an expanded, one-mile walking route designed to highlight the best of the Cedarhurst campus.

Savor the season with a stroll along Peppermint Pathway. Watch in wonder as our new floating

feature does a Winter’s Waltz across the Cedarhurst pond. And dance along to Lightspill, a moving feature installed atop one of Cedarhurst’s largest sculptures.

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 s’mores at the fire pits or stay warm with a hot cocoa (adults can add an extra kick!) as you immerse yourself in the illumination.

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
