Fall Creek Falls State Park will herald in the holidays with its annual Christmas on the Mountain Celebration, slated for Friday, Nov. 30 through Sunday, Dec. 2, at the park’s Inn and Conference Center.
In addition to a number of activities for all ages, the three-day celebration will feature handmade crafts, candies and breads. The Inn will be adorned with holiday decorations and various musical groups and choirs will perform throughout the weekend.
Make plans now for a special breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Inn’s restaurant on Saturday, Dec. 1, from 8 to 10 a.m. Adding to the festive spirit will be weekend appearances by Santa and Mrs. Claus, bringing gifts to the little ones.
Other activities for children and adults include Christmas craft making and storytelling, which will be offered on Saturday, Dec. 1, from 9 until 11 a.m. Also on Saturday the Friends of Fall Creek Falls will host a silent auction from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., with proceeds benefiting the Friends group’s ongoing efforts at Fall Creek Falls.
“Fall Creek Falls’ Christmas on the Mountain is a long-standing holiday tradition and we hope everyone can come out and enjoy great holiday food and music. It is also the perfect opportunity to pick up that special handmade gift for Christmas,” said Inn Manager John Fonville.
