More than 10 miles of holiday lights will adorn Heritage’s 100 acres of gardens and woodlands to create a twinkling wonderland.

Throughout the grounds and buildings, visitors can enjoy family-friendly activities, roast marshmallows, enjoy performances, see displays of model trains and visit with Santa Claus.

“It really is a wonderful time to stroll and see these beautiful twinkly lights throughout the garden,” said Spear.

There have been new additions to the seasonal event.

The indoor model train exhibit has been expanded to include two levels and there are new activities and indoor displays.

Among the features at Gardens Aglow, include an antique carousel, a reindeer scavenger hunt, ice sculpture demonstration and dance performances by community groups.
