The City of Gaitherburg‘s Winter Lights Festival in Montgomery County, Maryland is getting ready to welcome visitors for its 25th spectacular season. The wondrous display of lights at Seneca Creek State Park will be open nightly November 26 through December 31. Please note that the festival will be closed on December 25.
The 3.5 mile drive through the enchanted setting of Seneca Creek State Park takes you past more than 450 illuminated displays and beautifully lit trees that light up the night. Add to the festivities, tune in to 97.1 WASH FM for holiday music.
The park is located at 11950 Clopper Road, conveniently accessible from I-270. Advance online admission is $15 per car Monday through Thursday and $25 per car Friday through Sunday. Due to the popularity of this event and excessively long lines this year, all tickets must be purchased online. Traffic is very heavy on the weekends. Attend on the weekdays for shorter wait times.
