The City of Gaithersburg Winter Lights Festival is getting ready to welcome visitors for its 24th spectacular season. The wondrous display of lights at Seneca Creek State Park will be open nightly November 29 through December 31. Please note that the festival will be closed on December 25.
The 3.5 mile drive through the enchanted setting of Seneca Creek State Park takes you past more than 450 illuminated displays and beautifully lit trees that light up the night. The park is located at 11950 Clopper Road, conveniently accessible from I-270.
