Victorian Christmas – December 7 & 8 RAIN OR SHINE!

| Friday, October 18th, 2013 | 3 Comments »

Join us as we kick off the holiday season at our annual Victorian Christmas Celebration and Open House from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 7 and Sunday, December 8. Bring the whole family FREE of charge to enjoy festive period entertainment, tours of the Museum decorated in holiday splendor, refreshments, a children’s Victorian craft and a horse-drawn trolley ride between The Banning Museum and Drum Barracks Civil War Museum. Back by popular demand, the weekend will also feature local food and craft vendors. As a special treat, a Queen Victoria re-enactor will receive guests and Jolly St. Nick will pose for photos with the kids.

In anticipation of the 150th Anniversary of the completion of the Banning Mansion, guests will be invited to tour a special exhibit, “150 Years in the Making, 1864-2014”. The exhibit reflects upon three separate eras of the Mansion; The Banning Years, The City Years and the Friends Years.

    I was wondering if you were going to have any volunteer opportunities for the event. If so, I would gladly love to help out. I have been involved in other volunteering opportunities, most recently the Fall into Literacy even that took part in October at the Residence.

    Thank you,
    Jessica Salazar
