(Victor Valley)– On Saturday, Nov. 30, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Calico Ghost Town will transform into a holiday festival with a photo op with Santa and Mrs. Claus, Christmas caroling and the annual tree lighting that is sure to amuse the merriest of little spirits in this picturesque Old West mining town.
Festival goers can sing along or simply listen to your favorite holiday melodies. There will be a reading of the favorite “T’was the Night Before Christmas”, contests for the whole family, crafts for kids, gunfights performed by our very own Calico Mountain Volunteers and The High D Boys will perform on the Main Street Stage.
Avoid the lines and parking nightmares at shopping malls and browse the specialty arts & craft shops for that hard-to-buy-for relative, neighbor or friend. Some of the shops will be offering special discounts for holiday shopping.
Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive at 11 a.m. with a cheery “Ho! Ho! Ho!” for photos with the children and will light the Calico Christmas tree at 6:30 p.m. After the tree lighting, Lil’s Saloon will provide complimentary cookies and hot chocolate.
Calico will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Prices are $8 per adult, $5 children ages 4-11, and 3 years and under are FREE.
