My house a week back or so during a late night snow dusting. Always wondered what other fall haunts look like at Christmas.
Family and I attended the Winter Wonderlights display at Sunnyside last night. Based upon the Washington Irving tale Rip Van Winkle...

A disappointment....

It was rather sparse and short and I really can't recommend. It lacked the atmosphere & overall fun when compared to The Blaze held in the fall at Van Cortlandt Manor.

At times somewhat amateurish and limited(prop /decor wise).

On the plus side ..walking through the woods at night is cool! Ha! I'll be fair..there's more than that...many if not all the items used were recyclables (water bottles and other plastics). Not sure if this is what hindered the appearance of things but it came across at times as "cheap looking".

Anyway a few pics....

This I liked a lot. Rip's 20 years sleep.

Don't make me come over there and hang a tangled ball of string lights over your door!

BTW - Merry Christmas!
