Plano’s Heritage Farmstead Museum to host Lantern Light on Saturday

Heritage Farmstead Museum in Plano will host its 31st annual Lantern Light, a holiday family event for all ages.  This year’s event is themed 1929: The Great Texas Snow.

The Lantern Light event will take place 3-8 p.m. Saturday.  The museum is located at 1900 W. 15th St.

“Lantern Light is a unique holiday experience that provides Heritage Farmstead Museum visitors the opportunity to recall holiday traditions from days gone by,” stated M’Lou Hyttinen, in a press release.

The event will include tours of the holiday exhibit in the Farrell Wilson House, children’s crafts in the one room school house, wagon rides, candle dipping, historic demonstrations, storytelling, songs of the season in the historic pole barn, delicious treats and photos with Santa.

The event also will feature a snow mountain and sledding area for all to enjoy. Sledding is $2 per run, three runs for $5 or unlimited runs via a bracelet purchased for $10.

“I can predict chance of snow at Lantern Light is 100 percent this year,” stated Kathy Strobel, director of development.  “Come enjoy sledding in the meadow as we recall 1929: The Great Texas Snow.”

Admission is $5, with children 2 and under being admitted for free.
