Christmas Open House

1-4 p.m.

Free

Experience 19th century Christmas traditions while learning about Long Beach’s local history at Rancho Los Cerritos’ “Christmas Open House.”

Guests can explore the adobe home, decorated for the season, and discover 19th century Mexican and American holiday traditions.  Children can participate in crafts and activities from the California frontier, and will be able to take home their own hand-made decorations. Piñata breaking, bi-lingual storytelling and a visit from Santa will certainly make this a memorable event!

Free musical entertainment and refreshments will be provided.  Decorative ornaments, gourmet jellies, children’s toys and handmade Christmas crafts will also be available for purchase in the Museum Gift Shop.
