Old Bethpage Restoration by candlelight

The Candlelight Evenings celebration at Old Bethpage Village Restoration will take place on Dec. 15, 16, 17 and 18 from 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
“I invite all residents to attend the Candlelight Evenings at Old Bethpage Village Restoration and experience an old fashioned holiday celebration complete with 19th Century holiday decorations, entertainment, and much more,” Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano said.
Candlelight Evenings at the restoration will offer a Hallmark card setting of flickering candles inside the village’s historic homes, along with 19th Century holiday decorations and entertainment, all set within the confines of a rural valley setting, according to a press release from the Nassau County executive office.
Among the forms of 19th century entertainment offered will be music, including a brass quartet and fiddlers playing seasonal songs as well as performers by local schools and organizations, a traditional 1866 decorated Christmas Tree, stories of Christmases past, contra-dancing and a traditional bonfire.
The Old Bethpage Village Restoration provides visitors with an opportunity to step back in time and experience life in a recreated mid-19th Century American village set on more than 200 acres.  
Hours are Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  
Entrance fees are $10 for adults, and $7 for children ages five to 12, seniors and volunteer firefighters.  
Children under five are free.  
The Old Bethpage Village Restoration is located at 1303 Round Swamp Road in Old Bethpage — exit 48 of the Long Island Expressway.
