Holidays at the Manor House returns

The 47th annual Holidays at the Manor House returns to Wildwood Preserve Metropark Saturday, Dec. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 11, from 10 am to 8 pm daily. The free tours feature 30 holiday displays created by volunteers.

For over 45 years, community volunteers have decorated the 30,000 square-foot mansion for the holiday season, and no two years have been the same.

The s’mores tent and carriage rides, pulled by the team of Molly and Sally, mules from the Canal Experience at Providence Metropark, will return. Tickets for the rides are available at


“Everything is new every year, but what hasn’t changed in more than four decades is the primary purpose of Holidays at the Manor House. It is a holiday season thank-you to the community for its support of Metroparks,” said Dave Zenk, executive director of Metroparks Toledo. “The event started as a way to show gratitude for the passage of a levy in the 1970s that allowed the park district to acquire the land that is now Wildwood, and has become a Toledo area tradition.”
