Allerton Park and Retreat Center
Opening Night – December 4
Join in the opening night festivities to kick off the celebration! There will be snacks and beverages from local food trucks and special entertainment for this night only, too. You must register ahead of time and the cost is $10 per person (12 and under are free). Select a time here as groups will be limited to 50 people each hour, and tickets are going quickly (and will sell out, so don’t delay.)
The Winter Wellness Walk features an illuminated one-mile walk through the gardens of Allerton Park after dark. The path will be familiar to Allerton visitors, including a trip through the Fu Dog Garden and other Allerton favorites.
This year, the walk will stay illuminated all the way through January 31, 2021 so you can enjoy the lights well beyond Christmas and the New Year. Visit nightly from December 4 and January 31, between 5 and 9 p.m. (excluding Christmas and New Year’s Day). There is a suggested donation of $10 per car upon arrival (excluding opening night). You can make a donation online or they can be made at the North entrance of the Park.
Visitors must wear a face mask when going on the walk and practice social distancing of six feet at all times.
