Join our merry band of Christmas carolers on board a school bus to Longwood Gardens.
This year, we've got the cheaper bus: no seatbelts, but room for a great bellowing horde and 2 coolers. Bring your own sandwiches & beverages of choice, and your holiday spirit. We'll bring the karaoke mic and the lyrics.
Bus costs $10 a head, and can accommodate 46 people, 2 to a seat.
Longwood Christmas group rates are $23 adults, $9 age 5-18. Free for members**
**Members are REQUIRED to make a reservation with Longwood (free, but necessary during peak times) for our 6:30pm time slot by registering online, here: https://tickets.longwoodgardens.org/.
[Yearly membership costs $185 and includes entry for any five people as long as one of them is the key member.]
Non-members, please let me know and I will buy your discounted group-rate tickets. These tickets are non-refundable but Longwood will generally allow you to use them later at a non-peak time.
Please confirm as soon as possible, as bus spots and Longwood tickets will sell out at this busy time. Reserve your bus seat with Eventbrite, then email me about your Longwood ticket preference, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please arrive promptly to board bus at 5:00pm behind Merion Elementary.
What can I bring into the event?
You may bring a bagged dinner for your family to eat on the bus. Good hot food is also available for sale at Longwood Gardens cafe. You are also welcome to bring beverages (alcohol is allowed) and snacks on the bus. We will provide coolers, ice and waters. If you like, you can join our cookie exchange for the return trip.
Is there a bathroom on the bus?
Nope. You'll be able to use the bathroom at the Gallagher house before boarding.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Feel free to email Jen at Rockwoodjen@gmail.com
What if there's a rain storm of biblical proportion?
You will enjoy the extra twinkly lights, and avoid the worst of the deluge by indulging in an adult beverage inside the expansive cheery & dry conservatory.
Shout out to all our brave damp adults from last year who still had a ton of fun; and to all the kids who thought puddles and sparkles are more fun anyway. :)
