This December, if holiday hustle and bustle overwhelm you, turn to a relaxing evening at Boscobel House & Gardens.
Boscobel presents its new illumination event, Sparkle, Nights of 10,000 Lights. Taking place over six different evenings, Sparkle will be a rain, snow or shine experience.
Meet Mr. & Mrs. Santa Claus in the Sparkle Garden to whisper your wishes and pose for photos (bring your camera!); find the towering Snow Queen who will wander the grounds looking for her trusty steed; join in caroling with the Taghkanic Chorale, and enjoy sweet sounds of the Katonah Celebration Bell Ringers. Find Thaddeus MacGregor in Boscobel’s Orangery where he will delight everyone with sounds of his flute and the antics of his dancing Limberjack! For one night only, there will be a special ice carving demonstration behind the mansion by award-winning ice carver, John Hedbavney.
Sparkle takes place the first three Fridays and first three Saturdays in December from 5 to 9 p.m. (12/6-7, 12/13-14,12/20-21). Each night’s attractions are different. Check the schedule and purchase tickets at boscobel.org. Twilight tours have limited space and require an advance ticket purchase. Members receive a 10 percent discount.
