Take a Walk through Holiday Lights! All the twinkling paths to stroll near you!
Where are all the lights? We love living in New England during this festive time of year. The first fallen snow is covering the ground and we have lots of winter holidays to celebrate! There’s no better way than getting outdoors to enjoy the winter festivities and to admire lots and lots of bright and beautiful lights! Here’s a quick round-up of where to go to see all the glistening this time of year!
Walk Through Lights
Candlelight Stroll at Strawbery Banke
Strawbery Banke Museum’s furnished historic houses are adorned with handmade decorations created from greens and dried flowers from the Museum’s heirloom gardens. As visitors travel from house to historic house, the glow of hundreds of candle lanterns light the way and guests enjoy seasonal greetings from costumed role-players and performers who recreate the traditions of times past.
