Old Fashioned Christmas Celebration
For those looking for a unique fun-filled Christmas family activity, Old Fashioned Christmas is returning November 27, 6:00 – 8:00PM. Yes, Santa will be there. And the Live Nativity and Sleigh Rides are all set…and, of course, the Big Tree Lighting. The popular reading of the Christmas story from the Bible at the historic Oakwood Chapel is planned. New this year is a visit from Rudolph, the reindeer…who will be available for petting. The event will be held outdoors on the grounds of Oakwood Resort, with activities starting with music near the Oakwood Inn. At 6:15 we will light the Christmas tree and sing carols around the lighted tree. Then you and your family may stroll up the lighted path to see Santa and Mrs. Claus. Take pictures with the kids! Listen to an elf read the Night Before Christmas. Stop along the path to listen to two different barbershop quartets sing carols. Get warmed up with some hot chocolate and munch on a cookie. Watch out for the Grinch! Other characters will be roaming the grounds and available for pictures too. Stroll up to the historic Oakwood chapel to hear the Christmas story read. Stop to see the live nativity on your way to the chapel. And you’ll want to relax and enjoy a horse drawn sleigh ride around the park. These are just some of the many fun activities at the Old Fashioned Christmas celebration. Hope for a bit of snow, but if severe weather occurs, check the Chautauqua-Wawasee Facebook site www.facebook.com/ChautauquaWawasee for information and updates.
