Holiday Illumination WeekendDisplays will be created by Dutchess County Parks, local municipalities, nonprofits, businesses, fire departments, clubs and schools. Applications are currently being accepted from interested organizations.

County Executive Molinaro said, “As COVID-19 continues to impact our area, Dutchess County Parks continues to find new and creative ways to safely collaborate and highlight our beautiful parks. We are grateful to the many local organizations and municipal partners who have joined this effort to decorate Wilcox for the holidays and bring some much-needed cheer to Dutchess County residents of all ages.”

Dutchess County Parks Director Sandy Washburn said, “This season, many parades have been canceled due to the pandemic, so we are excited to offer this unique opportunity to come together safely and celebrate the season with this drive through light display. We look forward to viewing the creative displays from participating organizations, and showcasing our community’s resiliency, spirit and light during these unprecedented times.”
