A Farmer’s Christmas
The Delaware Agricultural Museum’s Christmas festival, “A Farmer’s Christmas” held on December 2nd was a great success.
The Agricultural Museum and authentic 1890’s Village was transformed, through the hard work of its volunteers, into a Christmas wonderland. In the main building artisans demonstrated their crafts, while young visitors created crafts and visited with Santa and Mrs. Claus. After strolling through the “Avenue of Trees”, visitors were transported back in time as they stepped outside and entered the Museum’s authentic 1890s village, where they experienced “A Farmer’s Christmas” from bygone years
It’s not too late to stroll down the “Avenue of Trees”. The Museum’s Christmas decorations will be on display at the Delaware Agricultural Museum through December 30th.
Be sure to mark your calendars for next year’s event to be held on December 1, 2018 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.
