December 9, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
The Marathon County Historical Society presents their annual Holidays at the Houses Saturday, December 9th from 10:30 am-4:30 pm. The Woodson History Center and Yawkey House Museum will be decorated for the holidays, and visitors will experience the season with live entertainment, children’s activities and the popular Friends of Wausau Historic Landmarks annual Sweet Landmarks Gingerbread Contest.
This year’s theme will be “Making Christmas Memories”. What are the things you look forward to doing every year during the holiday season? What reminds you of home? Decorating cookies, caroling, holiday storytime, vintage toy and Barbie displays, decorating a tree, photo fun, coloring contest and of course, Santa will keep everyone having a festive time while making new memories.
