Start the holiday season off by joining in a time-honored island tradition.

San Juan Historical Museum’s Annual Old-Fashioned Christmas Celebration, Thursday, Dec. 5, 5-8 p.m., is the historical society’s way of giving thanks to the community for its continuing support. Museum buildings will be decorated in holiday finery and the winter wonderland train set—a delight for children of all ages—will be back on track.

This year, the museum will welcome a special guest, Santa Claus, with digital children’s portraits available for $5 from Dustrude Photography, with holiday pricing on additional photo items as well.

The celebration features traditional caroling, led by the Island Chordsmen Plus, and marshmallow roasting at the crackling fire pit. Chili and Ivar’s world famous clam chowder, hot apple cider, and festive baked goodies galore will be available, too. Admission is free, donations are welcomed.
