The Buffalo Bill Center of the West is welcoming the community and surrounding region to its annual Holiday Open House on Saturday and Sunday, December 3 and 4, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.
The event is free, but those attending are encouraged to share the holiday spirit by bringing a non-perishable food item or a still-packaged toy. The donations can be placed in the collection boxes at the main entrance. The Center will distribute the food donations through Cody food pantries and toys through Toys for Tots.
The Center decorates for the holidays and serves complimentary hot cocoa and candy canes during the Open House. All five museums are open to explore, and Santa Claus enjoys visiting them too. Attendees can find him roving through the Center from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on each day.
