Time NOW to mark your calendar, to visit Boscobel during Sparkle! 2014 when the gardens and grounds will turn into dazzling lighting displays of the holiday.

Boscobel snowqueen-280x420Joining in the fun will be Mr. & Mrs. Santa Claus as well as the  Sparkle Queen Stilt Walker. There will be ice carving demonstrations; the Taghanik Choral be will be singing, and the Manhattanville Sound will sound.

New for 2014 will be acoustic guitar soloist Rick Soedler, a light-up magic show with Margaret Steele and illuminated hoop dancing performances with the Sparkle Spinners.

At the very heart of the Boscobel Sparkle is the mansion itself: elegantly decorated for receiving visitors.  Awash in the soft glow of candlelight, ongoing, guided twilit tours are led by engaging docents who will share 19th century entertaining customs in a charming atmosphere which promises to transport guests back in time.

Sparkle takes place the first three Fridays and Saturdays in December: 5th & 6th, 12th & 13th, 19th & 20th. There are two ticket levels available: Grounds Only and Grounds Plus, which includes a Twilight Tour. (Twilight Tours are by advance reservation only. Space is limited and they do sell out quickly!) Tickets are on sale now. To plan your visit, check Boscobel.org for the schedule of Sparkle attractions.

Boscobel is located on scenic Route 9D in Garrison New York just one mile south of Cold Spring and directly across the river from West Point. From November & December 9:30am to 4pm (last tour at 3pm).  Boscobel is open every day except Tuesdays, Thanksgiving and Christmas. For more information and buy tickets, visit Boscobel.org or call 845.265.3638.
