35th Annual Victorian Christmas Open House Sunday, December 8, 2013 | 12:00 – 4:00 pm | Free Heritage House | 8193 Magnolia Ave., Riverside
Step back in time and experience the spirit of a traditional Victorian Christmas one would have seen in the 1890s. This family-friendly celebration features Father Christmas; a unique range of musical entertainment which includes caroling, autoharps, dulcimers, bagpipes, and a barbershop quartet; home-baked sweets; and hot-mulled cider. Fresh-cut greens, handmade wreaths, and mistletoe will adorn the home and one can enjoy making holiday ornaments and decoupage a Christmas keepsake box. Heritage House is located at 8193 Magnolia Ave. in Riverside. Free parking is available at the YWCA. The event is free and open to the public. For more information about Heritage House, click here.
Event Parking: Due to limited parking at the Heritage House, please plan to park on the street or across the street at the YWCA. Please note that the YWCA’s parking gate will be locked after 4:30 pm.
