Rome, New York – On Saturday, November 28, Fort Stanwix National Monument will be hosting its annual Holiday Open House. This special event highlights the winter traditions of the residents of 18thCentury Fort Stanwix and the Mohawk Valley. The festivities will begin at 6:30 pm and end at 8:30 pm. This event is free of charge.
"Everyone is invited to sing, dance, and be merry! This event is unique for winter visitors, who will have amazing opportunities to make a New Year's wish chain and see the candlelit fort decorated as the soldiers and their families might have done," said Park Ranger Kelly Roman. "Bring your family and friends for a relaxing post-Thanksgiving evening."
Open house activities will include a holiday sing-along and a junior ranger holiday hunt. All of the rooms will be decorated with candles, ivy, and cozy fires. The festivities end at 8:30 pm, but the fort will remain decorated throughout December. Those who are unable to attend the event will be able to view them during the 10 am and 2 pm tours, weather dependent.
