The Silver City Museum will be hosting the Annual Victorian Christmas event on Saturday December 11th from 1:00 P.M. to 5:00 P.M. with some major modifications to account for the health of the public due to COVID-19. According to a news release, the Victorian Christmas will take place mainly outdoors, therefore being moved to a daytime activity. The event will be expanded into the courtyard and allow for a greater variety of activities including: the making of birdseed ornaments; cornhole toss; and Father Christmas giving out books. There will be heat lamps and hot mulled cider to warm the guests, cookies, ornament-making, and live music. This event is made possible by the generous sponsorship from the local First American Bank, who has been a Victorian Christmas partner for years. For more information, visit
