Holiday Open House Saturday
Written by Andrew-Rossi on November 29, 2018
The Buffalo Bill Center of the West’s annual Holiday Open House will be happening this weekend, opening its doors for free to the community in celebration of the season.
On Saturday, December 1st, the Center will be filled with festive decorations, Santa Claus, and entertainment. Local and regional groups perform for the crowds, with entertainment running simultaneously in two venues. The diverse programs offer something for everyone: music by choruses, carolers, honor choirs, jazz bands, and instrumental quartets; dance in styles from ballet to modern, clogging to tap. All these performers generously volunteer their time and talent.
And in front of the Center’s Museum Store, popular local author and historian Bob Richard will sign copies of his latest book, Frost & Richard Camping Co. Journey to Yellowstone, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
The Holiday Open House is free, but families attending are encouraged to share the holiday spirit: The Center asks that you bring a non-perishable food item, still packaged toy, dry pet food, or pet toy item and place it in the applicable collection box at the entrances. The Buffalo Bill Center of the West will distribute the food donations throughout the Cody food pantries, and toys will be distributed through Toys for Tots, while pet items will go to the Park County Animal Shelter.
