MONTGOMERY — The Orange County Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation is pleased to announce it will present the 10th annual “Holiday Lights in Bloom” program beginning on Nov. 23 at the Arboretum in Thomas Bull Memorial Park.

The Arboretum will be in “full bloom” with garden themed light displays in the forms of flowers, animals and insects.

The “Holiday Lights in Bloom” program is free, and will be open to the public from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays starting Nov. 23-Dec. 30.

Volunteers from The Friends of the OC Arboretum will be on hand in the Ottaway Education center serving free hot cocoa (while supplies last) and selling handmade crafts at their Holiday Boutique, which will end on Dec. 16.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the light show, it has been greatly expanded throughout the grounds of the Arboretum.

The Arboretum is located within Thomas Bull Memorial Park on State Route 416 in Montgomery (enter Hamptonburg for GPS directions) and is accessed from the Grove Street entrance to the park.
