Sunday was the last big event we were scheduled to work. It was the 42nd annual tree lighting here at the park. We have been getting ready for this event pretty much since we got here! There was a lot to see and do.
The farm buildings were all decked out with lots of greenery. There was a traditional candlelit German Christmas tree in the parlor of the 1915 Victorian home.
Mark getting the farm ready. Lighting the candles on the farm tree.
Also around the farm was a chuck wagon on the trail and a harmonica player out at the barn.
There were also lots and lots of cookies.
At the visitor center/exhibit hall, where I worked, we had lots of things going on.
We put out 100 luminaries. They were very pretty along the walkway.
Two authors were signing their books.
Live music, the Polka Dots. Santa flew in.
A live nativity. Local spinners
One of many guests of honor, Luci Baines Johnson.
The reason we were there - the lighting of the tree.
