2011 Christmas In The Valley

Each year there are certain local events that are considered Christmas traditions for us. Christkindl in Mifflinburg, the candlelight Service at the Historic Warrior Run Church, and the mansion tour in Williamsport are some of our favorites!  There are so many great Christmas events in our area - these are just a few:

November 18th-19th Williamsport Pa
They always do this one so early - before Thanksgiving.
The mansion tour here is fabulous.  My boys love the train display.  Their Christmas parade is amazing.  

Dec 2-3 Wellsboro PA
covered wagon
We have never been to this, but I'm putting it on our calendar and hoping to make it there this year!  I've heard it is wonderful.

Dec 3rd, 10am, Muncy Historical Society
"For the children in all of us, the ever-popular reading of Clement Clarke Moore’s holiday story is held at the Muncy Historical Society Museum, 40 N. Main St., Muncy. Santa Claus is known to attend and hot chocolate and cookies are served after the reading. The society’s Museum Shop will be open for holiday shopping ideas."

Dec 3rd, Lewisburg Pa 1pm
Lewisburg Victorian Christmas Parade

Dec 8-10 in Mifflinburg PA
This is one of our favorite events each year.  It's a market, with parades, and entertainment, and displays.  My favorite time to go is for the Thursday night lantern parade, with St Nicholas arriving on a white horse. 

December 10th, 7pm, Watsontown PA
Warrior Run Church
The candlelight service at the Historic Warrior Run Church
It's a beautiful service that we try to never miss!  Cookies and spiced cider are served after.

High Tea At the Victoria House

This is held each month, but I like to take my daughter at Christmas time.  :-)
