Christmas Lights at Hubbard Park to be Lit on November 24, 2011

Christmas Lights at Hubbard Park to be Lit on November 24, 2011

I know that it is hard to believe, but it is almost time for the annual lighting of the Christmas Lights at Hubbard Park in Meriden!  If you have never experienced the amazing display of Lights at Hubbard Park in Meriden, you are missing something absolutely amazing! 

This year the lights will be turned on to the over 300 lighted displays on November 24, and they will be on until the first week of January.   

If you have ever been driving along I-691 after dark during the holiday season, you have undoubtedly noticed the snowflakes on the south side of the highway--these a just a tiny piece of the fantastic display of lights throughout the park. 

Also along I-691, but on the north side, you really can't miss the lights outlining Castle Craig.  This is not a light display that you can drive to (as the road to the Castle closed at night), but it is a wonderful view for the busy highway drivers!

So be sure to check out the Hubbard Park Christmas Lights.  Even if you go every year, it is a treat again.  Take along a new neighbor to show them a treat that is hard to beat!  Hubbard Park is located along Route 322 (West Main Street) in Meriden, Connecticut.  Here are just a few of the photos that we have taken over the years . . .
