Plano’s Heritage Farmstead Museum will soon be bedazzled with more than a million twinkling holiday lights. Museum officials announced last week that they would host the farmstead’s first-ever holiday light event. The yuletide display will shine on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from Nov. 26 through Dec. 26, with the exception of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
Highlights of the all-outdoor event will include a quarter-mile trail through the farmstead showcasing light creations, animated displays and a 20-foot Christmas tree. Guest will also be able to enjoy hot cocoa and making their own s’mores. Santa Claus is scheduled to be on hand too.
