Old Westbury Gardens’ Holiday
Old Westbury Gardens doesn’t have The Nutcracker, but it’s always a delightful place to visit this time of year. Old Westbury concludes its season with its Holiday Celebration beginning this weekend, a popular annual event filled with holiday cheer. A visit to Westbury House, all decked out in its seasonal splendor, is always a treat.
Period rooms are beautifully decorated with wreaths, mantelpiece drapes, topiaries, plants and other horticultural arrangements. Antique clothing and toys from the Westbury House collection are also on display. Bring the children to create crafts and share their holiday wishes with Santa.
The celebration unfolds Saturday, Dec. 7, and continues weekends through Dec. 22. Old Westbury Gardens is located at 71 Old Westbury Rd., Old Westbury. For more information, contact (516) 333-0048 or www.old
