A Victorian Santa Event with the Newport Historical Society
December 9 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm$40
Victorian Santa and Mrs. Claus are coming to Newport! On Saturday December 9, 2023 from 10am – 1pm, the Newport Historical Society will host a family-friendly Christmas outing complete with professional Santa photos and kid-friendly activities.
The historic Colony House at the top of Washington Square serves as the perfect backdrop to your professional photo with a 19th century St. Nick. The family admission ticket includes a photo by renowned children’s photographer Ashley Richer; photos will be emailed to participants after the event.
Families can enjoy a “kid’s tour” of the Colony House’s second floor to view the 19th century courtroom and an 1801 portrait of George Washington painted by Gilbert Stuart. Hot cocoa from Empire Tea + Coffee will be available.
Join the team from Cutie Curls for a kid’s Christmas craft to take home and enjoy. A modest fee covers this hands-on activity.
To help celebrate the 200th anniversary of Clement C. Moore’s famous poem, the first 30 families who register will receive a free copy of ’Twas the Night Before Christmas!
Advance tickets are required as space is limited. Tickets cost $40/family, or $35 for Newport Historical Society members and military families, and they are sold for a one-hour timeslot.
