“The Lights in Bloom exhibit is a tradition in Orange County, and we are excited to have it back this year,” Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus said. “Like most events, it will look and feel a little different this year, but I think it is important that the County hosts the popular event for our community. It is always a fun and exciting display for residents to enjoy with their friends and families.”
