Last updated 10/15/2021 at 6:54pm
FALLBROOK – The weather says it's summer, the calendar says it's fall, but the Fallbrook Historical Society is preparing for its annual Christmas open house – the biggest event of the year – scheduled to take place Dec. 5 from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Heritage Center located at the corner of Rocky Crest and Hill Avenue. This year's theme is "A Whistle Stop Christmas."
The open house will include activities in every building, including a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus in the Donald J. Rivers Interpretive Center, also known as "The Barn." Guests will be welcome to pose with and take "selfies" with the famous pair, and hot cocoa and cookies will be served by Fallbrook's Rainbow Girls. The Fallbrook High School Madrigals also will be performing throughout the event.
The open house also will feature docent-guided tours of the Main Museum, the popular Pittenger House, the Ford Room and the Gem and Mineral Museum.
"We are working to secure the services of a local restaurant to provide no-host meals in our parking lot," added Committee Member Pat Saunders. "And we will be having a silent auction as well. There will be something for everyone at this very special celebration."
Admission is free; however donations are more than welcome. Donations also are needed for the silent auction. Questions? Contact Pat Saunders at 442-226-6294.
