The Maytown Historical Society is planning our first “Maytown Winter Festival ” to be held on Saturday December 10, 2011 from 11am to 6 pm. Vendors will be located in the historic town square and along High Street. Shopping for gifts galore!
Enjoy a town crier; carolers singing in the square; a Belschnickel (old German style Santa); plus another traditional “Santa” located inside the beautifully decorated town square. Maybe a juggler and magician. Musicians and instruments playing Christmas carols all afternoon on the square and around town.
One of our lovely older homes will be converted into an old fashioned bakery. The smells of homemade apple dumplings and other baked goods will make your mouth water. There will be food vendors for light fare. However, if the cold bites at you, stop by the “Royal George Tavern”, where you can enjoy a hearty lunch or dessert. It will be a wonderful way to get warm and enjoy the atmosphere in a 1790 stone home located on the square.
For those who would enjoy a bit of Maytown history, a trolley ride around town is ideal. The churches will be beautifully decorated for you to behold. Then at dusk, the grand illumination: the Christmas tree and tiny white lights in windows everywhere. As you see, we are planning a winter festival to remember!
Hope to see you there!
