The Spirit of Christmas Past

Saturday, December 04, 2010 - Sunday, December 05, 2010   Noon-4 pm

Stroll the 1870s Crossroads Village plus the Ketola farm and discover the charms of many holiday traditions. Snap a photo with our historic Father Christmas and walk house-to-house, shop-to-shop, as you join in the festivities and see how different cultures contributed to the rituals we enjoy today. Make this event the start of your own holiday tradition! The event repeats on December 11 and 12.

Special Note to Visitors: Trams will not be in service during either weekend of this event, and the roads that link the Visitor Center with the Crossroads Village and the Ketola Farmstead are unpaved. In the event of snow or other inclement weather, wheelchair access to the event may be difficult.
