Olde Tyme Christmas in Harpers Ferry

Olde Tyme Christmas in Harpers Ferry
You are invited to the 44th annual Olde Tyme Christmas Celebration in historical Harpers Ferry, where you can enjoy the popular activities and events offered in "Christmas Past" celebrations and also some new events. From about December 1st through January 5th, the Town will be arrayed in fragrant green garlands, red bows, and twinkling lights (which give a modern but warm touch to the 1860 living history village). On each weekend from December 5 through December 14 (December 5, 6, 7, 13, and 14), shops and streets will be filled with special treats for the enjoyment of visitors of all ages: musical performances, puppet shows, storytelling, visits with Santa, caroling, arts and crafts shows, and much more. Located only an hour train-ride or drive from Washington, DC, Harpers Ferry offers a traditional Christmas celebration that will charm and delight you, your family, and friends!
