Who loves everything about the holidays? This mama does! There's something nostalgic about seeing Christmas lights lit up, twinkling beautifully, and giving so much joy to everyone, right? I'm so into Christmas this year because Emily actually understands what's going on. She knows all about Santa and tries to tell Brody about him, it's so sweet.
To kick off our holiday festivities, Scott and I were invited to attend the brand new Winterlights at Newfields where over 1.3 million lights decorate their gorgeous grounds and let me tell you...it did NOT disappoint! Winterlights starts November 19th and ends January 7th so you have plenty of time to get tickets and see it in all it's glory.
Some other information from the official press release:
Explore The Garden at Newfields as never before with more than one million multi-colored lights and 80 foot trees wrapped to the ends of each tiny branch. Breathe in the crisp, winter air filled with the scent of evergreens and campfires. Marvel at the choreographed Landscape of Light on the Lilly House lawn and stroll garden pathways, nestled amongst trees glowing with color. Listen to your favorite seasonal songs as lights dance to the music.
While strolling through Winterlights, indulge in a warm cup of hot chocolate or apple cider—with spiked options available for adults—and a special Newfields beer from Taxman Brewing Company. Warm your hands by the fire and make your own s’more provided by local Girl Scouts, or continue your journey with treats to go.
Winterlights will continue some of the IMA’s most beloved holiday traditions. At its heart will be the historic Lilly House, filled with sparkling decorations and beautiful floral displays that continue the a tradition started in 1971. Karl Unnasch’s whimsical 50-foot-tall tree of toys, Playtime in Indy, returns in a brand new location surrounded by giant Whimsy Trees, perfect for a family photo. Every Tuesday in December, Santa Claus will join in the fun with a special appearance.
Whether you are looking for an impressive date night, an activity for visiting family or a seasonal adventure for kids, Winterlights provides a one-of-a-kind experience for all ages.
