The Untermyer Gardens Conservancy is sponsoring a Grand Holiday Illumination at Untermyer Park and Gardens, 945 North Broadway in Yonkers on December 11 at 6:00 PM.  The Walled Garden—its architecture and plantings—will be illuminated in a ten point countdown led by Mayor Mike Spano and former Mayor Angelo Martinelli.  After the illumination, hot chocolate will be served.

Recorded music from the Christian, Jewish and Islamic traditions will be played.  Peace on earth and good will toward men will be the theme, as the Walled Garden is a Persian garden, based on the concept of the Garden of Eden.

This gift to the community from the Conservancy will continue until January 3.  Every night, the Walled Garden will be open for visitors to stroll, admire the lights and listen to classical music from 5:30 until 8:00.  On Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings, free hot chocolate will be served by various community groups.

Admission is free.  For further information, call 914-613-4502.  The Conservancy’s website is www.untermyergardens.org.
