Join Ad­kins Ar­bore­tum for ‘A Long­wood Christ­mas’ bus trip

Sunday Star - - MID-SHORE CALENDAR -

RIDGELY — Ex­pe­ri­ence the joys and won­ders of the season when Ad­kins Ar­bore­tum hosts a bus trip to Long­wood Gar­dens for A Long­wood Christ­mas on Mon­day, Dec. 17.

“Join an af­ter­noon and evening of or­gan sin­ga­longs, strolling car­ol­ers, foun­tain per­for­mances and plenty of yule­tide cheer — all with­out the stress of driv­ing and park­ing,” a news re­lease states.

The an­nual cel­e­bra­tion show­cases more than 6,000 sea­sonal plants and more than a half-mil­lion lights in the gar­dens and on the grounds. This hol­i­day season, A Long­wood Christ­mas looks at the Christ­mas tree in a new light.

The “Tree Reimag­ined” theme fea­tures fes­tive firs sus­pended from above, tow­er­ing tan­nen­baums cre­ated from books to bird­houses to stained glass and more tra­di­tional fa­vorites el­e­vated with sur­pris­ing new twists.

Ex­plore hol­i­day dis­plays in the Con­ser­va­tory, then ven­ture out­doors to view il­lu­mi­nated trees, stroll be­neath float­ing orbs of light and watch as trees and branches take on new il­lu­mi­nated life.

The bus de­parts from Aurora Park Drive in Eas­ton at noon and will pick up pas­sen­gers at the Routes 50/404 Park and Ride and from the Routes 301/291 Park and Ride in Millington. The re­turn time is ap­prox­i­mately 9 p.m.

The trip fee is $75 for mem­bers and $100 for non­mem­bers.

Ad­vance reg­is­tra­tion is re­quired at ad­kin­sar­bore­tum.org or by call­ing 410-6342847, ext. 0.
