Begin the Holidays at the Pioneers Museum
Free Children's Holiday Magic Celebration

Pioneers MuseumThe magic of holidays begins with a free day of family fun on Saturday, December 4, at the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum, 215 S. Tejon St. "We invite everyone to come and start the holiday season celebration at the Pioneers Museum, where the stories of yesterday and today are celebrated," says Carol Kennis, public programs coordinator for the Pioneers Museum. "Throughout the day, we will offer free activities for children, including rides in a goat-drawn cart around Museum grounds, holiday ornament making, sing-a-longs and, of course, magic."

Doors to the Pioneers Museum will open at 10 a.m. with a variety of activities designed specifically for children and their families. In addition to rides in an old-fashioned goat cart, visitors will be able to see demonstrations of model trains by local model railroaders Slim Rails, cultural dances by local ethnic groups, and weaving and spinning demonstrations by the Pikes Peak Weavers Guild.

Local magician Inspector Magic will delight the crowd at 11 a.m., the Colorado Springs Show Choir will perform at 1 p.m., local celebrity Tom O'Boyle will lead a holiday sing-a-long at 2 p.m., and children of all ages will enjoy hearing excerpts read from Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol at 3 p.m.

"To cap the day, the Museum will remain open through the annual Parade of Lights Parade, which begins at 5:50 p.m.," Kennis says. "The holidays are filled with fond memories and new traditions. We hope everyone will make the Children's Holiday Magic celebration a must see start to this year's joyous season."

The daylong event is sponsored by the Friends of the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum as their gift to the community.

The Pioneers Museum is located at 215 South Tejon. For more information about this free community event please call 385-5990.
