Since 1983. The public is invited to join the Village Folk and park staff as they step back in time and prepare for the Christmas season. Visitors are asked to dress warm and bring flashlights. Walk through the village and visit with pioneer interpreters in their cozy 19th century cabins. The Pioneer Village paths will be lit by lanterns and firelight will fill the cabin hearths. The village gift shop will be open with many homemade and old- fashioned items suitable for Christmas gifts. Sweet treats, hot drinks, and Christmas crafts will be available for purchase in the Pioneer Village Log Barn. People are encouraged to bring flashlights.
