LAFAYETTE – Vermilionville is taking guests back in time with their annual Old Time Christmas Family Day Celebration.

Happening until 4 p.m., there will be live music, food, Native American storytelling, arts and crafts, and self-guided tours.

Vermilionville artisans will demonstrate several holiday traditions from 1765-1890, like how to make candles, soap, Victorian paper ornaments, citrus pomanders and more.

There will also be discussions about traditional decorations, gift giving and the Réveillon, along with readings of The Night Before Christmas each half hour.

Papa Noël is also there, accepting letters sealed in wax from kids.
