Wellington Farm, USA is now accepting reservations for what has been billed as “The most unique Christmas Experience in Northern Michigan.” Billed as “The Farm By Lantern Light” the full evening activity includes a sleigh ride, a visit to the historic farm and a full length play all rolled into one. Seating is very limited so reservations are an absolute must. “The Farm By Lantern Light” will take place on December 7, 8, and 14, 15. The first performance begins at 6:40 p.m. with additional performances beginning every 20 minutes there after. Twelve people are admitted to each performance. The entire performance lasts about two hours. During the course of the evening, participants will board a horse drawn sleigh and be transported back in time to the year of 1932. Following the sleigh ride, visitors will stroll through the farm trails, all beautifully lit by kerosene lanterns. During the course of their walk, visitors will visit each building at the farm complex and in each building another scene of the play, will be presented. The play is based upon an event which took place in Wellington many years ago. Now that event has been woven into one of the most heart-warming Christmas stories presented anywhere in Michigan. A wonderful family event! Reservations can be made by calling 989-348-5187 or visiting the website at www.wellingtonfarmpark.org.
