The Bel Air Downtown Alliance, Greater Bel Air Community Foundation, and Town of Bel Air are excited to bring “Winter Wonderland” to Downtown Bel Air this holiday season. 

When you’re watching those holiday movies, you might picture yourself wanting to be in a Winter Wonderland. Now you’ll be able to experience it at Downtown Bel Air. The Winter Wonderland project is an initiative to decorate the Bel Air Armory and Armory Park with holiday décor, and bring visitors to shop, dine, and experience Downtown Bel Air.

 

From November 30th to January 1st, The Armory and neighboring Frederick Ward Park will be decorated with tens of thousands of warm white lights which will be lit every night from 5-10pm. Each Saturday will feature additional holiday-themed programming at the Winter Wonderland location.
