Brooks Announces Holiday Show Opening At Highland Park's Lamberton Conservatory
County Executive Maggie Brooks announced that the 2013 Holiday Show at Monroe County’s Lamberton Conservatory opens to the public, Friday, December 6th. This seasonal horticultural exhibit is a popular annual tradition at Highland Park, which began 102 years ago, when the Conservatory first opened.
“Once again, the Lamberton Conservatory is 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 Sunday evenings, so more visitors will be able to include this outstanding seasonal exhibit as part of their family’s holiday itinerary.”
Traditional holiday plants provide dazzling waves of brilliant colors within the Conservatory. Over 1000 Poinsettias are on display, representing 10 different varieties.
“Back again by popular demand, our Holiday Show features an eight-foot high Poinsettia pyramid, which has become an annual favorite among visitors,” said Larry Staub, Director of County Parks. “Also anchoring the exhibit are fresh evergreen Christmas Trees, wreaths and sparkling lights strung throughout the complex. This place is truly a winter wonderland!”
