Save the Date: A Tims Ford Christmas

EVENTS | Winchester — Anonymously penned in 1823, Twas the Night Before Christmas, is responsible for most of our modern notions of Santa Claus … especially the tradition of gift giving. On Saturday, December 14 a reading of the classic poem will be part of a holiday celebration hosted by Tims Ford State Park.

A Tims Ford Christmas will also feature a gingerbread house competition, Santa letter writing station, and photo ops with both Santa and Mrs. Claus.
