A wonderful holiday tradition in South Walton continues as Eden Gardens State Park Wesley House lights up for the holidays. Tours of the Wesley House are Thursday – Monday from 10 a.m.- 3 p.m., every hour on the hour. The Christmas decorations will be up through Dec. 31. The rest of the park is open 7 days a week.
Enjoy the walk through the luminaries and a candlelight tour from 5 – 8 p.m. on Dec. 14. Take a free tour of the house and admire the beautifully decorated rooms, each decorated in different themes by local businesses and organizations.
The Friends of Eden invite you to join them in the Pavilion for refreshments after viewing the house.
This yearly event is sponsored by Florida Park Service and the Friends of Eden – donations to the Friends will be appreciated.
