Old-Fashioned Holiday Social – Dec 8, 2012

Join the National Historic Parks for their annual Holiday Social. It’s a pot luck and dance, and it’s a lot of fun.

Visitors are invited to bring holiday cookies and ornaments to hang on the tree, which will be erected in the old British Royal Marine Light Infantry barracks building — just as it was done — most likely — in the mid-1860s, when the camp was in its heyday.

The park will provide beverages, two crackling fires to warm the bones and entertainment to include staff and volunteer re-enactors in period uniforms and dress, storytelling and contra dancing with “Pig War.”

The San Juan Carolers also plan to drop by for a few songs. A motorized golf cart is available to provide transportation from English Camp parking area to the barracks for those with accessibility needs. Info, 378-2240, ext. 2233.

Admission: Free

Date & Time:Saturday, Dec 8, noon – 3pm

Location: English Camp barracks, West Valley Road
