BATAVIA – Families can join Mr. and Mrs. Claus and Elsa from “Frozen” during The Holmstad’s ninth annual Christmas Open House from 2 to 4 p.m. Dec. 16 in Batavia.
For the free event, the 38-acre senior living community will be decked out for a whimsical holiday celebration for all ages, a news release stated. Visitors can climb aboard a trolley for a ride through the decorated campus and view colorful, life-sized displays created in the community’s woodshop by a group of Holmstad residents.
Their creativity is evident in a Nativity scene with Mary, Joseph, Jesus, three wise men, an angel and animals. Other scenes include Santa in his sleigh, reindeer and Dickens-themed carolers – all designed to provide festive Christmas photo opportunities.
There will be live reindeer and face painting for kids and strolling carolers. The Holmstad, a continuing care retirement community, is at 700 W. Fabyan Parkway. For information, visit theholmstad.org or call 877-226-7310.
