Christmas at the castle
Saturday December 1st AND Sunday December 2nd 12-4pm (both days)
Join us to start your holiday festivities with Smith’s Castle’s Annual Christmas at the Castle.
This year you are invited to meet some of the historical ladies from
Smith’s Castle’s past. They will be represented by a display of dolls carefully researched and
created in 1960 by Mrs. Emily Green, Miss Mary Whitlock and Miss Anna Yost, as well as by
modern interpreters who will tell you some of their stories. Costumed docents will also be
available to guide you through the house and answer your questions.
Saturday entertainment will include the always popular Beacon Pole Hill DAR Chapter
Dulcimer Players and the Brown University Madrigal Singers.
On Sunday we will be enjoying Updyke Rose, the St. Luke’s Bell Choir and Sheila Reynolds on the guitar.
On both days: Father Christmas will be in attendance and Mrs. Claus will entertain with music and stories for the
children. Children’s craft activities, cookie decorating, and face painting will be available as well
as complimentary mulled cider and cookies. For the shoppers among us, there will be vendors,
a Bake Sale featuring home-made treats and a Holiday White Elephant Sale featuring wreaths
and vintage Christmas decorations.
Admission: Adult, $8.00; Children 6-12 years, $3.00; Children under 6, free; Family Cap,
