I hear those sleighbells ringing!

During the recent snow, volunteer Greg Ludwig hitched his team of horses to a beautiful sleigh and gave rides to staff and visitors on site. It doesn't get any better! Thanks Greg, we can't wait for the next snow to arrive!

Bonfire Night at Landis Valley

It's a tradition that no one seems to know how long has been going on. The museum's annual Bonfire Night will take place this coming Friday evening with the "doors" opening at 6pm. While there is no admission, we ask visitors to bring canned goods to donate.

Many of the buildings will be open within the village. There will be lots of cooking going on in the Tavern. Not sure where the Tavern is located? Just follow all the good smells. The bonfire will begin at around 6:45. The Lititz Moravian Trombone Choir will proceed up to the steps of the hotel while playing holiday music along the way. Following a welcome, all are invited to sing around the fire! At 8pm the doors of the Yellow Barn will open and everyone is invited to come in and warm up with hot mulled cider and cookies. Oh and don't forget the horse drawn rides beside the hotel. They are free but donations are always welcome.

This is a special night at the museum. There are families and friends that attend every year - regardless of the weather! We hope that you can join us this year.
