Join us on Saturday, December 5th for our 19th Annual Sinterklaas- St. Nicholas Day Celebration. This year will look a little different as we adjust for social distancing guidelines but we hope you can join us for craft activities, tree lighting, and a visit from St. Nick.

Children will enjoy a special visit from St. Nicholas as he arrives on horseback around 2:30PM. St. Nicholas will tell the traditional tale of The Bakers Dozen and children are invited to sign the Red Book. Sip hot cider, try your hand at colonial games, create a holiday pomander, decorate a Dutch clog for Sinterklaas, and dress the tree for the tree lighting that will close the day as the sun goes down.
