Plano, Texas -- On Saturday, December 2, Heritage Farmstead Museum of Plano will host its 31st annual Lantern Light, a holiday family event for all ages.  This year's event is themed "1929: The Great Texas Snow."

"Lantern Light is a unique holiday experience that provides Heritage Farmstead Museum visitors the opportunity to recall holiday traditions from days gone by," said Heritage Farmstead Museum Executive Director M'Lou Hyttinen.

The event will include tours of the holiday exhibit in the Farrell
Wilson House, children's crafts in the one room school house, wagon rides, candle dipping, historic demonstrations, storytelling, songs of the season in the historic pole barn, delicious treats and photos with Santa.

The event will also feature a snow mountain and sledding area for all to enjoy. Sledding is $2 per run, three runs for $5 or unlimited runs via a bracelet purchased for $10.

"I can predict chance of snow at Lantern Light is 100 percent this year!” said Heritage Farmstead Museum Director of Development Kathy Strobel.  “Come enjoy sledding in the meadow as we recall 1929: The Great Texas Snow."
