Light up the New Year! My goal this year was to see almost every light show in the area… Zoo Lights, Wildlife Experience, Hudson Gardens Trail of Lights and Botanical Gardens. All have in common there is a trail of lights to follow and all have their own knack.
Zoo Lights: Visit zoo animals, ride a holiday train (so not for kids only), watch ice sculptures made, a fire show, and listen to carolers.
The Wildlife Experience: Visit Santa, real reindeer, and a Santa Village, watch how the Grinch Stole Christmas and explore the exhibit inside that takes you through all the different climates of the world.
Botanical Gardens ‘Trail or Lights’: Explore an old farm that was used by the Hildebrand family and take a walk back into pioneer life as millions of lights surround you.
Hudson Garden: Visit a house that dances with lights, take a carriage ride around the perimeter and other creative gems that you wont find anywhere else! A true spectacular!
Yes, the shows are over. But they will be back next year, and it’s never too late to start planning!
