In addition to the beautiful light displays throughout the gardens, the event features nightly performances at 6:30 pm in the Automobile Gallery. St. Nick will hold court in the 1913 Model T Ford. Families can view a stunning model train display and create a craft together to take home. People of all ages can take a spin (or two) on the vintage carousel and roast marshmallows together at the fire pits. On Saturdays, Chip Koser of South Cape Ice Sculptures will demonstrate ice carving, giving visitors the opportunity to see an ice sculpture created right before their eyes, and to take their photos with the sculptures. Stroll the gardens with family and friends, and enjoy Heritage in a whole new light. Check the weblink for updated information and tickets.Read more

The rollicking country swing of the Sweetback Sisters is as infectious as it is heartbreaking. Their charismatic charm harkens back to the golden era of both the silver screen cowgirl and the ersatz cowboy stars of local UHF TV kiddie shows. That whimsical exterior is wrapped around a core of deeply felt love for traditional country music styles and a palpable joy in playing and singing together. Like their pseudo-sister role models, the Davis Sisters, the Sweetback Sisters sing country songs in close, surrogate-sister harmony and of course their signature matching dresses.Read more
