GOSHEN — The ninth annual “Holiday Lights in Bloom” program will kick off for the season on Friday, Nov. 24, at Thomas Bull Memorial Park.

The Arboretum will be in “full bloom” with beautiful, garden themed light displays in the forms of flowers, animals and insects. Visitors will be amazed by the many paths of lit trees, gardens filled with an assortment of flowers and the 9/11 Memorial Garden will be adorned with patriotic decorations. Other features in this year’s “Lights in Bloom” will include a pond created in lights.

The “Holiday Lights in Bloom” program is free and will be open to the public from 5 to 8 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, starting Nov. 24 through Dec. 23 and then daily from Dec. 26 through Dec. 31 from 5 to 8 p.m. (closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day).

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 (until Dec. 17).

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