Celebrate the holidays as might have been done during the Colonial period at Sunbury.

Interpreters and volunteers in historical attire will fire the Christmas guns (muskets) as a holiday salute across the countryside, wishing all a joyous season. Jamie Keena will provide Colonial Christmas music.

The Christmas Story will be read and the traditional Yule log, representing warmth and light, will be brought in and thrown into a Christmas bonfire that will be lit around twilight. Caroling of period songs and sharing of Colonial refreshments will also take place around the fire. Colonial dancing will close out the evening, and everyone will be invited to join in.

Event is sponsored by the Liberty County Convention and Visitors Bureau, the city of Flemington and the Friends of Fort Morris. For more information, call 912-884-5999 or email fortmorris@coastal
