Thanksgiving week kicks off the official start to the holiday season! Montgomery County is celebrating with plenty of ways to enjoy Turkey Day with the family, like spending Small Business Saturday shopping our unique downtowns. Plus, don’t forget entertaining concerts, plays, quaint main street tree lightings, and the beginning of Santa sightings!
SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY IN SKIPPACK VILLAGE
Skippack is known for its boutique retail shops offering some of the finest jewelry, fashion, gifts and gadgets in the area, and all shops and restaurants are locally owned and operated. Come stroll through the quaint village, soak in the holiday atmosphere and discover unique gifts to complete your list.
POLAR BEAR EXPRESS
Beginning November 24
Most people think of Santa traveling by sleigh, but when he really wants to go first class, he takes a seat in the glamorous passenger car of the Colebrookdale Railroad. There are many December options in riding with St. Nick, including brunches and dinners and departures that include a reading of “Twas the Night before Christmas.”
Every Friday November 24 – December 22
Skippack Village shines during the holiday season when illuminaires light the paths every Friday night. Walk the candle-lit paths of the village as you shop and dine in Skippack’s one-of-a-kind stores and restaurants.
CHRISTMAS AT GLENCAIRN
November 24 – January 7
Reflecting artistic expression across multiple ethnic backgrounds, the collection of nativities at Glencairn Museum appeals to all faith traditions. On display are dioramas made for the Pitcairn family, duplicating a set made for the Eisenhowers in the White House in the 1950s.
