County Executive Maggie Brooks announced that Monroe County’s Lamberton Conservatory will officially re-open to the public on Friday, November 30th, after being closed for much of the fall season, due to the renovation of its exterior entry plaza. The re-opening will also mark the kick-off of the Conservatory’s 2012 Holiday Show. This seasonal horticultural exhibit is a popular annual tradition at Highland Park.
“As we re-open this landmark community attraction, with an inviting new outdoor gathering point and entry walk, the Lamberton Conservatory will be decked out for the holidays in a festive botanical display of eye-catching colors and aromatic scents that fills the entire complex,” said Brooks. “The Conservatory will also be open for extended hours on Friday and Sunday evenings, so more visitors will be able to include this outstanding seasonal exhibit as part of their family’s holiday itinerary.”
The 2012 Holiday Show will be on display at the Lamberton Conservatory from Friday, November 30, 2012 through Sunday, January 6, 2013. The Conservatory is located in Monroe County’s Highland Park at 180 Reservoir Avenue and is open daily from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. (closed Christmas Day). This year, the Conservatory will be open for extended hours on Fridays and Sundays until 9:00 p.m., throughout the run of the show. Admission is as follows: Adult Admission is $3.00 per person; Youth Admission (ages 6 through 18) and Senior Admission (ages 62 and up) is $2.00 per person; Admission for supervised Children (through age 5) is FREE.
Back again by popular demand, the Holiday Show will feature an eight-foot high Poinsettia pyramid, which has become an annual favorite among visitors. Also anchoring the exhibit are fresh evergreen Christmas Trees, wreaths and brilliant lights strung throughout the complex.
Traditional holiday plants provide dazzling waves of brilliant colors within the Conservatory. A large number of Poinsettias will be on display, representing 12 different varieties.
