“Christmas Fun at Historic Johnson Farm” is scheduled for two evenings of twilight tours with an old-fashioned flare, on Friday, December 15 and Saturday, December 16 from 4-7 pm.
The celebration features activities for all ages, including visits with Santa, ornament making, raffle prizes, cake walk, visits with animals, wagon rides, hot chocolate bar and more. Free cookies and cider will be offered to visitors. The Heritage Weavers and Fiber Artists who occupy the renovated 1920s boarding house welcome visitors to try their hand at weaving a mug rug.
Like the fair, people will buy tickets for each activity. Each ticket is $1.00 with bulk deals. All proceeds from the event go to support the preservation and operation of the non-profit Historic Johnson Farm.
