Lots of lights…..
Christmas eve I visited Shore Acres with friends.
To quote from their website:
A community tradition was born in 1987 when the Friends of Shore Acres decided to “string a few lights” to help celebrate the holidays. That first season, 6,000 miniature lights, one Christmas tree, and the decorated Garden House drew 9,000 visitors.
Now, 300,000 LED lights, 30 large landscape lights, dozens of small landscape lights, 26 large holiday trees, dozens of lighted sculptures, entertainment in the pavilion, and a beautifully decorated Garden House draw 40,000 to 50,000+ visitors or more each season. Numbers vary with the weather. Inside the Garden House, scrolls of names are a tribute to business supporters and the more than 1,500 volunteers who make it happen.
I attempted some shots, but can’t begin to do the spectacle justice.
For a far, far better look at the amazing holiday lights at our gem of a state park, watch the video (just 2:16 minutes – I suggest going full screen):
