Beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 9, 2017, the Bureau of Land Management’s Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area will host a Victorian Holiday Celebration.

Take a step back in time to relive the 19th century holiday traditions celebrated by the families of Yaquina Head’s lighthouse keepers. Throughout the day, families can participate in making a variety of Victorian-era crafts.

“Visitors can enjoy traditional music by local musicians, caroling, and storytelling while sipping a cup of hot cider in a family friendly atmosphere,” said Yaquina Head Manager Janet Johnson.

Admission to the park (and this event) is free. Get some holiday shopping done, too, with a 20% discount at the non-profit Yaquina Head Book Store.

10:00 a.m.: Open Caroling
11:00 a.m.: Storytelling with Doug Force
