Spirit of the Lights is an outdoor light display that originated on Park Point at the home of Marcia Hales. The display is celebrated for its intimate and natural feel. Many of the motifs and displays are in memory of individuals or in recognition of meaningful moments. The display sprawls across Glensheen’s 12-acre lakeside estate, illuminating the grounds. It is free to attend the outdoor Spirit of the Lights display. Due to health and safety precautions, cider and cookies will not be offered this year. Guests are welcome to bring their own food and drink to enjoy on the estate.
