The first weekend in Christmas Fort Christmas Historical Park opens the doors to Christmas past with their annual Cracker Christmas.
The two-day festival is a holiday celebration harkening back to how Florida’s first settlers, Florida Crackers, would’ve celebrated it with by making traditional holiday gifts to making soap from scratch, carving wood, spinning wool and quilting.
Scheduled from December 1-2, 2012, this two-day event is a popular event in the area. Not only because it provides a slice of history but because there’s so much to do from the pioneer demonstrations to perusing arts & crafts fair created by hundreds of artisans, and even a visit from Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus.
Christmas, FL’s Post Office will be on hand also to postmark your letters and post cards. Parking and admission is free for Cracker Christmas. Gates open at 10am and close at 4pm daily. Arrive early because this is a popular event that draws huge crowds.
