Join us for Walden Winter Lights

Celebrate the season with a nostalgic holiday event ‘Walden Winter Lights’

 It is not too often that an absolutely free, all-ages welcome, holiday event is on the calendar—and this one is packed with all the things that remind us why the holiday season is the best time of the year.

Join the Shops of Walden for Walden Winter Lights on Saturday, December 13th from 1:30-5:30 PM. There is so much to do including;

Face Painting

Local artists from aMuse Uncorked are typically leading no-experience necessary group painting sessions on canvas, but for Walden Winter Lights they’ll trade their canvas for the cheeks of youngsters! Amuse Uncorked will join the Shops at Walden in 2015.

Watch the Walden Evergreen Tree Lighting

At 5PM, the Walden Evergreen will be lit for the first time to kick off the 2014 Holiday season. It is truly a magical moment!

Alright, this part is not exactly free, but it is to support a good cause. Mechanicsburg Boy Scout Troop 80 is back again for their annual fresh Christmas tree sale and fundraiser. Open weekends throughout the season with a wide variety of trees available until sold out.

All events are rain, snow or shine, so come and take part of a purely fun holiday event. Smiles are likely and cameras and encouraged. Well see you at Walden Winter Lights.
