The National Park Service and California State Parks are gearing up for their annual "Old Time Holiday" celebration on Saturday, December 3 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. At the Camden House in Whiskeytown's Tower House Historic District, families are invited to make a free wreath to take home for the holidays. The wreath-making workshop will continue through 3:00 p.m. Visitors are welcome to bring their own hand pruners for cutting greenery. Other holiday craft activities will be offered for visitors of all ages, as well as live music and dancing by students from the French Gulch-Whiskeytown School. In addition, visitors can learn the fascinating stories of the families who settled here in 1852 by touring the homestead of Charles Camden and the adjacent historic orchards. Visitors at Whiskeytown's celebration will not be required to display a pass on their vehicles within the Tower House Historic District. In addition, to assist with holiday shopping, Western National Parks Association is providing a special 15% off sale on all books and souvenirs all day at the Whiskeytown Visitor Center.
