Holiday fun at Woodlawn

On Friday, Nov. 25, Woodlawn Museum will be abuzz with holiday activities from the a.m. “Turkey Trot” to the light display adorning the driveway and grounds.

ELLSWORTH — Woodlawn Museum, Gardens & Parks literally will glow this holiday season. The sweeping gravel driveway will sparkle with creative, colorful lights on either side and artful light installations will grace the lawn and illuminate the Black family’s stately brick mansion from 4 to 9 p.m. daily starting Friday, Nov. 25, and on view through December.

Sponsored by Darling’s Auto Mall, the spectacular lighting display is just one of several holiday events drawing Hancock County residents and visitors to Ellsworth’s historic estate straddling 180 acres this month and in December. Most of the colorful lights are solar-powered. The public is encouraged to make a donation at the exit gate. Proceeds benefit upkeep of the grounds.
