Christmas returns to Heritage Hill
November 19, 2013 by Lisa
Christmas history will once again be featured at Lake Forest’s Heritage Hill Historical Park in early December. The park will be celebrating the 31st Annual Victorian Christmas, during which families can tour the decorated park and experience a variety of entertainment options.
Providing visitors with a trip through time, the site contains restored buildings from through the ages, spanning the area’s rich history. There is an adobe from Mexican Rancho times, a schoolhouse and chapel dating back to late 19th Century, and even a farmhouse from the first days of citrus farming in the county.
Both public and private events are held at the park throughout the year, and guided tours are offered Wednesdays through Sundays. Their Victorian Christmas event features historical exhibits, arts and crafts vendors, tours through fully decorated buildings by costumed docents, and even visits from Santa Claus every year.
Since holiday events like this act as a way to bring the community together, a local printing company can help spread the word by creating dynamic promotional materials. Poster printing is a useful tool for building positive attention. They can be posted in public areas and in the windows of participating local businesses.
Victorian Christmas starts at 11:00 am on Sunday, December 7, and admission is $3 for children ages 3-12, and $4 for adults. The park will also be offering candlelit walks through the decorated areas the following weekend. More information is available on the Heritage Hill Historical Park website.
