OAKHURST — Hark back to days when the holiday was less about presents and more about being present – with friends, family and neighbors. There’s nothing like an old-fashioned Christmas, and that’s what you’ll find with Christmas at Fresno Flats Historic Park this Sunday, Dec. 8, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Brought to you by the Sierra Historic Sites Association, there will be live music and holiday caroling, hot food, including homemade soup and cider, as well as photos with Father Christmas.
The charming grounds and historic buildings of Fresno Flats will be decorated in style, providing the ideal setting for a neighborhood community gathering helping to celebrate the holiday season.
There will be a cooking demonstration over an open flame, scrumptious bake sale goodies, the opportunity to make reindeer treats, as well as the opportunity to create Victorian Christmas crafts.
Be sure to stop by the hot chocolate bar and s’mores roasting stations. Prepare to sing some Christmas songs as costumed docents lead tours inside the 19th-century rooms of the old school house, two-story home, log cabin, and print shop.
Fresno Flats Historic Park is just the right size for an intimate get together like this, and kids of all ages will appreciate the authentic living history demos of traditional trades, such as being a blacksmith.
Spending part of your Sunday at Fresno Flats is the perfect way to feel the truly festive spirit of the Christmas season. There’s a suggested donation of $5 for soup and cider. Activities are free.
