Stan Hywet brings Hollywood to Akron with Deck the Hall
Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens is once again decked out for the holidays, and this year it’s bringing a taste of Hollywood to Akron.
Deck the Hall has a reconfigured light show, with much more synchronization, and more than 1 million holiday lights throughout the grounds. Stan Hywet Spokesman Mark Syroney says the house is decorated with the theme “Lights, Cameras, Christmas,” which is all about classic holiday films.
“You have to go into the dining room, because that’s ‘Elf’—the movie we all know and love —and the dining room table is filled with candy and sugar and syrup. And then there’s a great big Lego set that’s been created by one of our volunteers of the New York skyline,” Syroney said.
Syroney adds that they had to make some changes last year because of safety protocols. This year, visitors can once again visit with Santa, who will maintain social distance behind plexiglass.
Deck the Hall runs 5 to 8 p.m. Dec. 9 to 23 and 26 to 30. Masks are required inside all buildings.
