During the holiday season, Kennett Square's Longwood Gardens hosts its annual Longwood Christmas series. The festivities include traditional Christmas floral arrangements, light shows, an illuminated pond, wreath-decorating events and Christmas tree displays.
Those who plan to attend the Longwood Gardens Christmas special should buy tickets in advance to ensure a spot in all of the holiday festivities. During the holidays, Longwood Gardens also features the dining options, musical performances and workshops that make the gardens a destination during the rest of the year. In years past, Longwood Gardens has included other holiday events, such as choral performances from local musicians and choirs, musical fountain and light displays, tea parties, and a showcase of festive horticulture featuring amaryllis and poinsettia flowers and intricately adorned Christmas trees. Photos of the seasonal displays are available at LongwoodGardens.org, where visitors can also learn more about facility hours and ticket prices.
In addition to A Longwood Christmas, neighboring Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, offers even more holiday activities in its historic shopping and dining district. A shuttle runs between Kennett Square and Longwood Gardens so that visitors can enjoy a fun day of holiday festivities without the headache of parking and traffic. Visitors can also purchase tickets to Christmas in Kennett ahead of time.
