The Mississippi Agriculture and Forestry Museum is set to host its annual “Homestead for the Holidays” event this winter season.
Family-friendly activities such as breakfast for supper, story time with Mrs. Claus, and pictures with Santa Claus and Rudolph will be featured. Participants will also have the opportunity to walk down Small Town and see various agricultural demonstrations, visit the Fortenberry-Parkman Farmstead, and experience what Christmas was like during the early 1920s.
A carousel, train rides, and hayrides will be accessible. Live music will be played throughout the grounds.
Limited-edition postcards, printed in the Small Town Print Shop, will be available for people to write letters to Santa. The General Store will be open for those interested to browse and purchase unique Mississippi-made products.
Folks with a sweet tooth will have the opportunity to indulge at the “Tasty Side of Agriculture” with cinnamon bread, gingerbread loaf, candy-cane cookies, and more, offered for sale at the old Filling Station right across the General Store.
The event will take place on Thursday, December 8, and Friday, December 9, from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Admission is $8 per person for ages three and older.
