Received this press release from the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center which is perched on the ridge in north Casper. If you haven't visited, this is a great opportunity to take a tour with the whole family. The Center has hosted a number of Wyoming Arts Council events, including poetry readings and Wyoming history events during the first Equality State Book Festival in 2006.
Here's the info for the center's holiday celebration:
Bundle up and visit the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) National Historic Trails Interpretive Center (NHTIC) for a day of holiday cheer and family fun. The event is free and open to the public.
The Trails Center’s annual "Holiday on the Homestead" will be held on Saturday, Dec 11, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The festival will feature holiday music, and a variety of activities, including making paper snowflakes and ornaments, and dipping pretzels into chocolate melted in a Dutch oven at the Prairie Sweet Shop.
Music and stories will be performed by Casper College's I Cantori, Buffalo Bill Boycott and Ana, Rachel and Friends.
"Holiday on the Homestead is a community holiday celebration," said Trails Center Director Mike Abel. "We are offering a variety of family-oriented, educational and fun activities."
