Families are invited to join Santa Claus and the Society of Versatile Entertainers for an afternoon of 1950s-themed fun at the museum this Saturday, Dec. 17 from 1-4 p.m.
Partygoers can help themselves to apple cider and cookies, search the history gallery in an elf-on-the-shelf scavenger hunt and craft holiday decorations, including paper caroling stars, tinsel wreaths and candy cane ornaments.
Santa Claus will make his grand entrance at 1:15 p.m. to a community serenade of Here Comes Santa Claus.
Afterwards, you’re welcome to take a photo with Santa and join in a Christmas singalong with music made popular in the 1950s.
The Versatiles will perform in the museum lobby at 1:45 p.m., 2:45 p.m. and 3:45 p.m. The local group, a favourite among children and seniors alike, will put on a “Magical Christmas” with dancing and singing.
