Up to 40,000 people are expected to tour the grand mansion at Wildwood Preserve Metropark during this year’s extended Holidays in the Manor House celebration.
Holidays in the Manor House has been driven by volunteers since the earliest days of Wildwood. Not only do volunteers decorate the 30,000-square-foot house, but they also serve as stationary guides, welcoming and directing visitors on the self-guided tour of 32 displays. Other volunteers help with stoking the fires and supplying visitors with the cookies and marshmallows to make s’mores at the welcome tent. The process of decorating the stately mansion begins almost a year in advance when decorators submit proposals for displays to a committee, which makes the final selection. This year, decorators were asked to incorporate a Metroparks theme into each display.
Visitors can also stroll a lighted path leading from the Manor House down to the boardwalk (follow the signs), and stroll through the decorated Shipman Garden.
