2021 Holiday Happenings
midway tea
Enjoy Christmas tea at the Midway Museum.

There are many activities that were either postponed or completely cancelled these past two winters due to COVID-19. But little by little things are slowly opening and some events have found ways to carry on while practicing social distancing and following CDC guidelines.

 We are thrilled to be able to bring back our Holiday Happenings calendar showcasing a few events being planned throughout the winter holidays. Some of these events might be subject to last minute changes. Please monitor the organization’s respective Facebook pages or websites for possible changes or safety requirements.

This treasured community event is great for the whole family. Enjoy the thousands of lights and endless holiday cheer. The floats are decorated with care, in hopes that Saint Nicholas soon will be there!
