Bring the whole family to enjoy one of Ohio’s largest and most spectacular holiday traditions, Deck the Hall. The estate is illuminated inside and out with 850,000 lights and the historic Manor House is decorated and inspired by the theme of “A Storybook Christmas.” DAZZLE is a fantastic outdoor light show animated to three new songs and Gingerbread Land, our popular Playgarden is “dressed up” for the holiday season. 

NEW for Deck the Hall
Our Stan Hywet elves have created a second animated window in the Courtyard, to join the vintage Akron window that was so popular in 2015. The Gingerbread Bakeshop Window features four bakers -- Ginger, Sprinkles, Sugar & Cookie in perpetual motion, while Joe the dog begs for a treat.

Near the windows is Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, a life-size animatronic reindeer. Step in Rudolph's corral, decorated with apples, hay and harnesses and take selfie with Santa and Rudolph.
