The living Victorian-era village will bustle with children’s activities, caroling, holiday shopping and much more on two Saturdays: December 5 and 12, for “Christmas at Historic Rugby.” Highlights of the Victorian Christmas celebration include holiday music, hot drinks and cookies in the decorated historic buildings, a visit from Father Christmas and the sounds of carolers performing throughout the village.
Christ Church Episcopal will present a choir concert of seasonal music both Saturdays at 4:30 p.m. EST (3:30 Central) in the 1887 church.
Festivities run from 4 until 8 pm. Admission is $10 adults ($6 for Historic Rugby members), $4 children K-12.
And don’t forget about our traditional Christmas Dinner at the Harrow Road Cafe on Saturday, December 5 and Saturday, December 12. Cost is $30 per person. Be sure to make reservations at: 423-628-2441.
