"Holiday Lights in Bloom” at the OC Arboretum Begins November 23rd
There may be a chill in the air 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 down paths of lit trees, walk through gardens filled with flowers and “critters”, visit the 9/11 Memorial Garden decorated in patriotic splendor and stop at the water’s edge of a pond created in lights.
The "Holiday Lights in Bloom"
program is FREE
and will be open to the public from 5:00pm to 8:00pm on Fridays, Saturdays and
Sundays starting November 23rd though December 30th. Be sure to visit this “ever growing” event and make it part of your family’s holiday traditions.
