All is Bright – Tuesdays – Saturdays Through January 15

img_7401ALL IS BRIGHT at The Park. Kirby Medical Center in Monticello is partnering with Allerton Park to bring people out of doors to enjoy an evening walk through a lighted magic land.img_7312img_7317img_7407img_7291
The path from the main parking lot to the House and finally to the Visitor’s Center is lined with strategically placed flood lights, dazzling twinkle lights and subdued back lighting.
Thursday, December 2, was the opening night of the light show. img_7044The Monticello High School Madrigals sang in the Courtyard. Amazing performance. img_7048Even the toddlers were  enchanted with the music and lights. img_7064

 

In the Brick Garden, the bell choir from Grace UMC from Urbana serenaded with familiar carols and Christmas tunes.

Warm drinks, cookies and fruit were offered to attendees in the Visitors Center.

The Park, usually closed at sunset (or 5 PM in Winter), is open for the public to enjoy the Wellness Walk from 5-8 PM, Tuesday’s thru Saturdays. The event ends January 15th, 2017. Kirby Medical Center wants to encourage the public to take an evening walk for wellness.img_7235
