candlelit-caroling-bonfireRing in the holiday season with an evening of music, light and merriment when Adkins Arboretum hosts its annual Candlelit Caroling Celebration on Sat., Dec. 10 from 5 to 8 p.m.

At the Visitor’s Center, enjoy seasonal live music in the gallery by Chestertown performers Dovetail and Nevin Dawson, hors d’oeuvres, and a cash wine bar. Take a candlelit walk through the woods along the Blockston Branch, stopping along the way to sing carols and toast marshmallows over a roaring bonfire. Join Delmarva Stargazers in the meadow to view the winter sky, step inside a twinkly gingerbread house, and top off the evening with a winter hayride to the Funshine Garden for hot cider and tree decorating.

Tickets for adults are $20 for members and $25 for non-members. Children ages 3–18 are $10, and children 2 and under are free. Registration closes on Mon., Dec. 5.
