About Gardens Aglow

A treasured holiday family tradition in Shrewsbury, MA, Gardens Aglow transforms the grounds of Heritage Museum & Gardens with over ten miles of colorful, sparkling holiday lights. That alone would be worth a visit, but that is not all. You and your family can partake in marshmallow-roasting, a reindeer scavenger hunt, carousel rides, holiday treats at Magnolia Café, a visit with Santa Claus in the Model T, and so much more. This season’s features include:

  • The “Heritage Holiday Express”: a two-level model trains display
  • Watch as ice sculptures are created right before your eyes and pose for photos with them every Saturday!
  • Get designer-created holiday tablescapes (table decorating) ideas from the following designers:
  • Irina MacPhee from Pastiche Cape Cod
  • Olive Chase of The Casual Gourmet
  • Richard McLaughlin of Fresh Interiors
  • Nina Mayfield of Nina Mayfield Design
  • The weekend of December 2nd through December 4th, cuddle with baby goats, piglets, chickens, baby chicks, bunnies, and other barnyard babies.
