On Tuesday, December 4th from 5pm–7pm Wentworth’s annual Illumination makes a festive occasion of lighting up the grand Victorian hotel, symbolizing the beginning of the holiday season in New Castle. This free, family event will welcome strolling carolers and a horse-drawn carriage with Santa. Crafts and games are available for children before the big unveiling of the giant gingerbread house! As an extra gift of the season, the hotel partners with the New Castle Fire Department to collect toys for disadvantaged children on the Seacoast. Toys can be dropped off at the fire truck on the night of the Illumination. During the month of December, members of the community and guests are encouraged to bring new, unwrapped stuffed bears to place under the lobby Christmas tree, where they will be collected and distributed by the New Castle Fire Department.
