Santa stops by at Old Salem

November 20, 2016 by  

Starting before the end of this month, Old Salem will begin its presentation of ‘Saturdays with St. Nicholas’.

This event, which features a variety of family-oriented activities, has become a tradition for the community. For four consecutive Saturdays after Thanksgiving, families, friends, and visitors will be able to experience five hours of holiday fun at the Old Salem Visitor Center.

The historic neighborhood will be festively adorned with traditional Christmas decorations, and in addition to admiring the scenery, visitors will be able to participate in special activities and programs. With Santa on the scene, guests can meet him as well as have pictures taken with him by a professional photographer. Winkler Bakery will have treats and holiday beverages available. Event organizers might benefit from decorative banners that could help stage the holiday scene in a way to raise seasonal spirits.

Visitors will also be able to listen to one of several readings of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’. There will be a couple of hours of holiday music, and guests can join in and sing Christmas carols with the playing of a Tannenberg Organ. For the shopaholics there will be holiday items for purchase and giftwrapping.

It all takes place at Old Salem in Winston-Salem on the next four Saturdays – November 26, December 3, 10, and 17, from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm each week.
