Everyone is invited to join us for a unique Christmas adventure. This is your chance to learn about Christmas in days gone by while wandering through Bel Air’s Winter Wonderland. The Historical Society of Harford County, Inc. is pleased to announce its first annual Candlelight Christmas Tour led by docent, Julie Brasch. Participants will enjoy Christmas stories of days gone by, caroling, delicious treats, and much more. Tours will begin on Friday, November 24, and run every Friday and Saturday until December 16.
The one-and-a-half-hour tour will begin at the Historical Society, 143 N. Main Street in Bel Air at 7 p.m. and returns to the Society for some sweet treats. Along the way, participants will learn about the many holiday traditions that have developed over time and hear unique stories about local traditions. Free parking is available on the Society’s lot located behind the building.
Tour groups will be limited to 20 people and pre-registration is required. Tickets will not be available at the door. To order your tickets, go to the Society’s website, www.harfordhistory.org. The price for tickets is $20 for adults and $7 for children 12 and under.
This is also an opportunity to begin your Christmas shopping early. Order a gift-wrapped copy of In Their Own Words, Harford in the 20th Century ($28), when you order your tour tickets, and pick it up the night of your tour.
All proceeds go towards the ongoing work of the Historical Society.
