It’s the most wonderful time of the year!  Gather family and friends and come join us on Friday November 25th from 5 pm to 9 pm for a fun filled evening of holiday cheer!  Enjoy the sparkling glow of our Holiday Lighting Show (our tree is magnificent this year!) and revel in the delight of children with the arrival of Santa!  It’s always exciting to see how Santa will arrive from the North Pole…last year, he came in on a fire truck…this year promises to be even more sensational! Afterwards, head into the Country Stores to warm up and see our very special Christmas Show in the World’s Largest Kaleidoscope.  Visit our magical Winter Wonderland where you can write letters to Santa, decorate ornaments, take pictures with Santa and get a goodie bag!  Plus, we’ll have face painting by Whoopsy Daisy along with  other cool activities!  Hungry? There will be food available for purchase, complimentary hot chocolate and, when you’re in the Country Stores, be sure to sample some of Grey Mouse Farms pickles because their products are made the old-fashioned way, with love and care!  While here, why not get a head start on your Christmas Shopping?  The Emerson Country Stores offer one-stop Holiday shopping with our personal shopping service and complimentary gift wrapping.  Also, beginning Friday, November 25th from 5 pm to 9 pm and throughout the weekend (9 am to 5 pm) we’ll hosting Jean & Enid’s Annual Holiday Show 2016 which will offer a multitude of great gift ideas by this unique group of artists:
