Heritage Farm’s Christmas Village sets holiday mood
White lights poked through wooden buildings and barns as visitors entered what seemed like a faraway Christmas wonderland Friday night at the Heritage Farm Museum & Village's second annual Christmas Village.
A live Nativity retold the story of Christmas' origin as children visited Santa Claus. Adults and kids alike enjoyed baked goodies while making their way through the Smithsonian-affiliated museum and viewing its holiday decorations.
Cabell Midland High School's Collegium Musicum performed chorales to set the nostalgic mood. Up to a dozen local artisans sold handmade Christmas gifts in the shops, while children made wooden toys, such as cars and cameras, in the Christmas Make Shop.
The Christmas Village continues from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2, and Dec. 8-9 at the Heritage Farm Museum & Village, located at 3300 Harvey Road. General admission is $5, free for children younger than 3 years old, and includes wagon rides, and parking is free.
