Old Time Holiday at Whiskeytown and Shasta State Historic Park this Saturday

The National Park Service and California State Parks are gearing up for their free annual “Old Time Holiday” celebration this Saturday, December 4, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Staffs at both Whiskeytown National Recreation Area and Shasta State Historic Park are breaking out the garlands, ribbon, and bows to bring the holiday season to life in your parks.  Live music will be provided by the local Back Forty String Band. Events at both parks are offered free of charge, and will go ahead as scheduled rain or shine.

A printed program describing the scheduled events will be available at both locations. In addition, visitors can pick up copies of a self-guided “auto tour” identifying historic points of interest on the drive between Shasta and Whiskeytown’s Tower House Historic District.  For more information on the Old Time Holiday Celebrations, please call the Whiskeytown Visitor Center daily between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at (530) 246-1225, or Shasta State Historic Park, Thursday through Saturday between 10 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at (530) 243-8194.
