A GOLDEN CHRISTMAS
Event tags: December holiday events, Reed Gold Mine, Santa Claus, Golden Christmas
• Take a candlelight tour during daylight hours at our "Golden Christmas" celebration. See how miners during the 1800s would have celebrated the holidays and the Germanic origins of some holiday traditions still around today. Visitors can support local craftsmen and shop for items throughout the visitor center. Saint Nicholas will be here to greet the children and give them a small treat, and they will have the opportunity to make a craft to take home. A hayride takes visitors to Mansion Hill, where John Reed's home and family cemetery were located. Riders will have a chance to unload and see the graveyard and learn about John Reed's family.
