Thousands of candles illuminate over a mile of pathways through woods and gardens, while holiday lights brighten the trees, buildings and bridges. This is the 18th year for what has become the traditional kick-off of the holiday season for many families. Kids love the Gnome and Fairy Villages, colorful Children’s Garden and visiting with Santa. Grown-ups appreciate the quiet walk through the winter woods. And everyone enjoys the beautiful music throughout the gardens and hot Louisburg cider around the campfire, followed by a horse-drawn wagon ride.
