Christmas Traditions of 1900 will be the theme throughout Dakota City Heritage Village. The horse-drawn trolley will transport you through the village streets as you explore the traditions of Christmas 1900’s style. Join in the caroling, warm yourself by an inviting wood-burning stove, and delight in the demonstrations of woodworking and holiday cooking as our villagers prepare for Christmas.

As a special treat, a presentation of A Christmas Carol will be featured in Ahlberg Hall by Children’s Castle Theater. Don’t forget to visit St. Nicholas!
