Walkin' in a Winter Wonderland - Luminary Event

Shawnee Prairie Preserve   

This holiday season join Darke County Parks for an evening stroll through our winter wonderland! There will be over 400 luminaries lighting your way along the wooded trails, allowing for a peaceful winter’s night in nature. As you hike along the illuminated trail toward the log house and blacksmith shop, you can enjoy the crisp air, the bright stars, and perhaps the light crunch of snow on this early December evening.
In the log house the fire will be warm with holiday snacks and drinks to sample. Enjoy pioneer music of Christmas past as you relax in the comforts of the 18th century. Holiday crafts for all ages will be available upstairs in the log house and in the Nature Center to fuel the memories of this staff-favorite event. The Nature Center and gift shop will be open throughout the event offering a chance to discover a selection of unique gifts, or that perfect holiday stocking stuffer! Don’t forget to bring a votive candle (or two) as a donation for next year’s path!
   Walkin’ in a Winter Wonderland is the perfect event for the whole family to celebrate the winter season. Start a family tradition this year!
