Christmas and Candlelights coming up at Hist. Washington State Park | Arts & Culture
Historic Washington State Park celebrates the holidays with its 26th Annual Christmas and Candlelight event, which runs from December 1st and December 8th. The park will open from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m., but the best way to enjoy the music and lights is to begin your visit in the late afternoon.
Tour locations and homes will be adorned in 19th century style decorations including natural handmade wreaths and swags tailored by park staff and volunteers the week of the event. Evening programming and tours begin at 1:00 P.M., lighting of the luminaries will happen at dark, and music from groups and choirs throughout the region will begin at 5:00 P.M. The famous William’s Tavern Restaurant Christmas Buffet will be served for both lunch and dinner so you don’t have to miss out on that tasty tradition no matter what time you arrive for the event.
Whether you choose to stroll the boardwalk streets or take a ride on the horse drawn surrey, you don’t want to miss bringing in the Christmas Season the old fashion way with Historic Washington State Park. Tickets are $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for children (6 -12) plus tax, and may be purchased at a $1.00 discount when ordered prior to December 1st from South Arkansas Regional Archives by calling 870-983- 2633. You may also purchase tickets at regular price at Historic Washington State Park the night of the event. Begin your own Christmas tradition by joining Arkansas’s Premier Historical State Park only eight miles off I30 from Hope Arkansas in Southwest Arkansas.
