Each year, on the first Thursday of December, the Morse Museum helps launch the holiday season in Winter Park when it lights up Tiffany windows in Central Park and presents the Bach Festival Choir and Brass Ensemble in concert. This December is the 41st annual celebration of Christmas in the Park. Christmas in the Park was started by Hugh and Jeannette McKean, the Morse Museum’s benefactors, in 1979 as a way to share a part of their rare Tiffany collection with the public in an informal setting. Today, the Morse and the City of Winter Park co-sponsor the event.
Please sign up so we know who is planning to come:-)
Time: The event begins at 6:15 pm when the signal is given to turn on the window lights. The concert concludes about 8:00 pm, and the windows remain lighted until 8:30 pm. YOU WILL DEFINITELY WANT TO GET YOUR CHAIRS AND BLANKETS SET UP BY 5 ISH. WE WILL TRY TO SAVE A BIG ENOUGH SPOT FOR WHOMEVER RSVPS BUT WILL NEED SOME OTHERS TO ARRIVE WHEN WE DO AROUND 5 TO HELP SAVE SPACE.
Where: The event is held in the northern section of Central Park—about a block from the Museum—near the intersection of Garfield and Park avenues.
Parking: Parking is available on the street, in the Museum’s parking lot, and in various City of Winter Park lots. A printable map is available for download from the City website.
Seating: Bring your own seating. Tables are prohibited. Blankets and lawn chairs may be set up beginning at 4:00 pm after the windows are installed.
Food: Bring a picnic style meal or grab something from a local restaurant to enjoy. Keep in mind it will be very busy that evening.
More Details: Adult beverages are allowed within the park from 5:30 pm to 9 p.m.
