Once again, it is time for us to gather and celebrate with family and friends for the end of year holidays. Holiday Lights at the Carlisle Visitor Center (12882 Diagonal Road, LaGrange) takes place this year from November 27 through December 30 (closed December 24 and 25). Hours are 6–9 pm Sundays through Thursdays, and 6–10 pm Fridays and Saturdays. Admission is free, but we are asking everyone to bring one, nonperishable food item that will be donated to Second Harvest Food Bank.
Join us at the Carlisle Visitor Center as we light up the night with our annual and free Holiday Lights program! Over the years, attending Holiday Lights has become a tradition for many families, as this free program has something for everyone. Please make time to visit this event with your family that has been called by visitors “inspiring and fun for the family” as well as a “wonderful experience!” By popular demand, the decorated trail stations along the ½ mile paved loop trail will once again be themed to represent various classic holiday movies. These stations were conceived and decorated by many creative Lorain County businesses, organizations and agencies. The Little Green Choo Holiday Express will also be running daily; offering rides through another decorated trail display. Inside the Carlisle Visitor Center, refreshments will be offered for a small fee, courtesy of Friends of Metro Parks. During our Holiday Lights program we will be having special offerings in the Carlisle Room throughout the week. We will be hosting a “Wildlife Giving Tree” with items needed to care for the animals of Carlisle; from our resident raptors and reptiles to our wild songbird visitors. Children can join us for drop-in craft nights on Saturday evenings, 6-9 pm. Other weekday evenings we will be playing classic holiday movies. Various evening programs will be conducted on Monday and Wednesday evenings (see below).
