Come one, come all and come hungry! Start your holiday season off by attending a time-honored island tradition. The museum buildings will be decorated in holiday finery and the winter wonderland train set will add to the festivities. Enjoy Ivar’s world famous clam chowder, chili from Ernie’s Cafe, delicious baked goodies and hot apple cider. Traditional caroling led by the Island Chordsmen Plus.  Bring the kids as SANTA CLAUS will be making a special visit this year.
