The holiday season is a time to celebrate, as family and friends gather to commemorate a very special time of the year. It is a time of memories and special events, as people take a moment to ponder the last year. Celebrations include parties and other personal gatherings, but they also include a number of community events. If you are interested in visiting some local holiday festivals, Antwerpen Hyundai has some destinations to consider this year.

Midnight Madness

Oftentimes the concept of Midnight Madness is associated with the start of the college basketball season, but in this case, it commemorates the start of the December holiday season. In nearby Ellicott City, residents and visitors are invited to enjoy a fun evening of shopping, warm drinks, period actors and carolers. More information on the fun in this historic district can be found at the city website, and visitors are encouraged to stay up late.

Magical Holiday Express

There is just something magical about trains, and when you combine it with the holiday season, you have a fun event that is appropriate for the entire family. During the holiday season, visitors can enjoy the B&O’s Magical Holiday Express, which occurs at the B&O Railroad Museum in nearby Baltimore. Throughout the month there are other exciting events, such as Breakfast and Train Ride with Santa. More info on this festive destination can be found online at the B&O website.

A Colonial Holiday

For those that enjoy a more historical perspective on the holiday season, there is the Colonial Holiday Celebration at the Belmont Manor House in Woodstock. This interesting and educational cultural event celebrates the season with delicious food and drink, along with period reenactments. The event provides support for education programs at Belmont, and more information can be found at the organization’s website.

The Nutcracker Ballet

The holiday season is often about iconic shows, and the Nutcracker Ballet is a well-known production that has become a seasonal favorite for many people over the years. There are opportunities to see the Nutcracker in a variety of places, but for locals there are performances at the Jim Rouse Theater for the Performing Arts in nearby Columbia. The ballet will be performed November 28 and 29, and tickets are available online.
