July 4 Red, LIGHT and Blue!

Join us for a Fourth of July celebration unlike anything else in town! We’ll kick off the evening at 6:30 pm with Family Night Out, featuring a “Magic of America” Magic Show. At 8:00 pm, the glow of Bruce Munro’s LIGHT installation will take center stage, and so will some talented musicians: enjoy a trio playing Americana music in the herb garden and a pianist in the mansion playing patriotic instrumental pieces. Cash bar stations will be available, and the party continues until 11 pm. Don’t miss it!
