Experience the Spirit of a Traditional Victorian Christmas

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.


Have you ever witnessed a murder while dining?

Well now you can, well not really, but you can pretend and have fun while enjoying your meal and drinks!  My husband took me a few years ago and I had a blast.  It’s so fun to sit and try to figure out who is guilty of murder while making new friends over dinner!
