Nov 21st, 2014 | By | Category: Community Calendar

Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus and county Parks Commissioner Richard L. Rose announced that that the sixth annual “Holiday Lights in Bloom” program will kick off the weekend of December 5 at the Orange County Arboretum in Thomas Bull Memorial Park. The program is free and will be open to the public on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. starting December 5 and running through December 28.

Despite a chill in the air, the Orange County Arboretum will be in full bloom this December with beautiful, garden-inspired light displays in the shape of flowers, animals, and insects. In addition, the 9/11 Memorial Garden will be decorated in patriotic splendor. Children and adults can stroll down paths lined with twinkling trees, walk through illuminated gardens, and stop at the water’s edge of a pond created in lights and teeming with life.

“The Friends of the OC Arboretum will be on hand in the Ottaway Education Center serving free hot cocoa and selling handmade crafts at their Holiday Boutique. Be sure to make visiting this event part of your family’s holiday tradition,” said Neuhaus.

The Arboretum is located within Thomas Bull Memorial Park on state Route 416 in Montgomery (enter Hamptonburg for GPS directions), and is most easily accessed from the Grove Street entrance to the park. For more information, please call 845-615-3828 or visit
