Local food trucks, make-and-take craft stations, pony rides and a live staging of Dickens’ “Christmas Carol” will highlight an upcoming holiday event at Millard’s Crossing Historical Village.
Held annually on the first Friday evening in December, “Old Fashioned Christmas” will be 5 to 9 p.m. this Friday, Dec. 6, at Millard’s Crossing, 6020 North St.
Each of the village’s historical structures will be decorated and feature an attraction such as live Christmas music, historic demonstrations or make-and-take craft stations.
“Thanks to our generous sponsors all activities within the village are free with the exception of food vendors and general store purchases,” says Millard’s Crossing Director Jessi Pinkert.
Food trucks on hand will include Brendyn’s BBQ, Shali’s Indian Kitchen on Wheels and Blue Horse Bakery. A one-hour version of Dickens’ “Christmas Carol” will be presented by Lamp-Lite Theatre in the chapel.
Bladesmith Kevin Burgess, recently featured on the History Channel’s “Forged in Fire,” will give live blacksmith demonstrations.
Other activities include a petting zoo, photos with Santa, making custom leather ornaments, fireplace cooking and rug-weaving demonstrations.
Admission fees of $10 adults, $5 children support ongoing maintenance and restoration of the village.
