There will be s'mores roasting, homemade gingerbread, and food trucks to satisfy anyone's Yuletide appetite. Be sure to visit Santa’s workshop which wouldn’t be complete without a visit from Santa. Children can stay warm while stories are told by the fireside, while parents stay warm with a cup of glühwein. Lastly, enjoy a luminous tour of Westville at night, as the village will be glowing with candles and oil lamps, along with our dressed interpreters.
