The Orange County Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation will present the 11th annual “Holiday Lights in Bloom” program beginning on Friday, Nov. 29, at the Arboretum in Thomas Bull Memorial Park.

It may be chilly out but the Arboretum will be in “full bloom” with beautiful, garden-themed light displays in the forms of flowers, animals and insects.

Children and adults alike will be charmed as they stroll through the various themed gardens created in lights.

The “Holiday Lights in Bloom” program is free and will be open to the public from 5 to 8 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays starting Nov. 29 through Dec. 29.

Volunteers from The Friends of the Orange County Arboretum will be on hand in the Ottaway Education center serving free hot cocoa (while supplies last) and selling handmade crafts at their Holiday Boutique (which will end on Dec. 15).

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.
