There is something truly magical about Christmas traditions with the family, and keeping that spirit alive by reminding kids what the season is all about. Children remember these special times and memories for the rest of their lives, from cutting down the family Christmas tree at a local farm, driving around downtown looking at the twinkling holiday lights, or bundling up in winter gear for a customary snowy hike on Christmas Day. What better way to begin celebrating this holiday season than by visiting Salomon Farm for an old-fashioned Christmas on the Farm?

On Saturday, December 5 from 1:00-5:00 pm, you can get into the Christmas spirit with festive live entertainment, a take-home holiday-themed craft for kids, various holiday vendors, a visit from jolly Old Saint Nick himself, and a live Nativity scene on display. You can warm up with free cocoa, while browsing vendors selling their goods in the barn - don't forget to check out the homemade Christmas cookies too! The DeKalb County Horseman will provide horse-drawn wagon rides for kids of all ages to enjoy the rural majesty of Salomon Farm. Amy Hicks, Outdoor Recreation Coordinator for Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation, suggests everyone dress warmly for the event. "We definitely recommend that our visitors bundle up for the weather because our Old Barn is not heated and the wagon rides are (of course) outside!" she said with a smile.

 

 

 

This year's traditional Christmas on the Farm celebration promises to be a magical experience in a beautiful setting, and may become part of your family's annual holiday traditions! Admission is $5 per car. Please contact Amy at (260) 427-6005 or amy.hicks@cityoffortwayne.org for more information.
