Palmetto Historical ParkDecember 6th & 7th from 5-9:00pm

Start your holiday festivities with an old-fashioned Christmas at Palmetto Historical Park and Manatee County Agricultural Museum. This free event offers something for everyone! Enjoy creatively decorated buildings, kids’ crafts, entertainment and, of course, Santa. Themed around the 1940s, featured activities include letters to soldiers, a “Memory Tree” in the Military Museum, “Cooking on a Ration” recipes to collect in each of the park buildings, contests for prizes, model trains, a petting corral and letters to Santa. The Jolly Old Elf himself will be arriving by fire truck at 6pm.

Bring your own camera for a photo with Santa. Food vendors on the premises include Word of Mouth BBQ, Demetrio’s Pizza, Impact Community Church and Snack It To Me. Alex’s Lemonade Stand will be raising funds for children’s cancer research and the Sweet Shop will raise funds for family programming. In the spirit of Christmas, help needy families by bringing canned goods for First United Methodist Church of Palmetto’s food pantry and drop them off at park entrances.

On Friday night, the Palmetto Public Library across the street will be doing face painting, holiday photos and a children’s book and holiday ring giveaway.
