Dazzling lights and giant nutcrackers grace Stan Hywet.


There’s more than just mistletoe and ornaments at Stan Hywet’s annual Deck the Hall exhibit. Half a million lights illuminate the spacious grounds, and a 20-foot tree serves as the 65-room manor’s centerpiece.

This year’s display pays tribute to The Nutcracker: Rooms are decorated like the famed ballet’s Land of Sweets and Land of Snow sets. There’s even a ginormous nutcracker at the hall’s entrance. The recently restored Corbin Conservatory also gets in on the action this year, with a display of more than 4,300 panels of festive colored glass.
Dec. 14-30, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
