This is Henny Hemlock, one of the light displays at Overly's Country Christmas at the Westmoreland County Fairgrounds. We went there last evening with our neighbors Beth & Greg and their daughter Haylee, age 2. It was not very crowded and not very cold, so we had a nice visit! The lights were beautiful and we had a great time. Our only hitch was getting home.... boy was that mountain icy! Thanks to Greg's careful driving we made it home safe and sound!
The display is HUGE! You can drive through it first, and then park and walk up in and see the displays up close. They have horse drawn carriage or sleigh ride, a train ride, a bonfire, model train display, antique toy display and Santa pictures. There are some costs involved for some of the extra activities but all of the money made at the display is donated to seventeen human service agencies in three different counties. Not a bad way to have some Christmas fun!
One of the first things that overtakes you when you are walking in is the Christmas music, then you smell the Kettle Corn! YUMMMMM! Hot Chocolate, Sweet shop and other food is available as well as a gift shop. I got the most adorable Fireman jingle bell ornament for DH in the gift shop.
It had the potential to be perfect.... but the one and only picture that I have of me and DH, I accidentally deleted.... I am irritated, frustrated and just plain old sad. Not a great big deal, just wanted something to show for it! Oh well, I have to be better about getting the old camera out and taking more pics!
Hope you get to see some beautiful lights this season!
