For those looking for a unique fun-filled Christmas family activity, Chautauqua-Wawasee plans to celebrate an Old Fashioned Christmas at Oakwood Resort in Syracuse November 30, from 6:00 to 8:00. The celebration is open to the public, free of charge, no registration is required.

The event will be held outdoors on the grounds of Oakwood Resort, with activities starting with music by a brass ensemble on the gazebo near the Oakwood Inn. At 6:30 we will light the Christmas tree and sing carols around the lighted tree. Then you and your family may stroll up the lighted path to see Santa and Mrs. Claus. Take pictures with the kids! Listen to an elf read the Night Before Christmas. Stop along the path to listen to two different barbershop quartets sing carols. Get warmed up with some hot chocolate and munch on a cookie. Watch out for the Grinch! Other characters will be roaming the grounds and available for pictures too. Stroll up to the historic Oakwood chapel to hear the Christmas story read. Stop to see the live nativity on your way to the chapel. And you’ll want to relax and enjoy a horse drawn sleigh ride around the park. These are just some of the many fun activities at the Old Fashioned Christmas celebration. Hope for a bit of snow, but if severe weather occurs, check the Chautauqua-Wawasee Facebook site www.facebook.com/ChautauquaWawasee for information and updates. And since this is Small Business Saturday, Syracuse’s retail stores and restaurants are offering special Christmas treats.

When: November 30, 6:00 – 8:00 P.M.

Where: Oakwood Resort Inn (outdoor event…dress for the weather)

Syracuse, Indiana

Who: Free to the Public. No registration needed.

Did you see Makeup Junkie Bags featured on Shark Tank? If not, they're considered the BEST cosmetic & travel bags you will ever own. Why? They lay flat on a surface & each has an elongated medial zipper that allows the bag to gape open allowing easy access to all materials. Ladies, you know what's aggravating! Most bags (IF they're wide enough) just tip over, spilling your contents everywhere. If they're pretty, the interior isn't water resistant or washable. Makeup Junkie bags were designed with us in mind. Stop in & check out our array of styles (7) & sizes (3) each with a fun tassel zipper pull.
