Heritage Farmstead Museum in Plano today announced that the non-profit will once again host its popular Lights on the Farm holiday event for several weeks this holiday season.
“Thanksgiving week marks the return of Lights on the Farm to the Heritage Farmstead Museum. Our beautiful, historic farmstead will be transformed into a delightful winter wonderland,” said Heritage Farmstead Museum’s Vice President of Marketing and Development Kathy Wilson.
At the Lights on the Farm holiday event, guests will have the opportunity to experience Heritage Farmstead Museum’s scenic, historic property bedazzled with almost two million twinkling holiday lights and filled with animated yuletide displays. The outdoor event will take place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening November 24 to December 30. This year’s event will also include new, special theme nights and senior discount nights on select dates, as well.
“"We are so grateful for the community support allowing us to bring this event back for a third year. The holiday season is a perfect time to share all the joy the farmstead has to offer. We hope to become a holiday tradition," added Wilson.
The all-outdoor Lights on the Farm event will feature a quarter-mile trail through the property showcasing stunning holiday light creations and animated displays crafted by First Choice Lights. Guests will also enjoy a 20-foot Christmas tree, refreshments such as hot cocoa, popcorn, mini donuts and make-your-own s’mores, and a chance for the youngest guests to visit with Santa. There will also be plenty of matchless selfie photo opportunities throughout the farm property.
