Celebrate Trees and Traditions at Heritage Village
Celebrate Trees and Traditions at Heritage Village

Heritage Village will present Trees and Traditions – a Centennial Celebration, a special day of holiday-related activities, on Saturday, Dec. 3, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Pinellas County Historical Society will sponsor an open house with refreshments, children’s activities and crafts, holiday music, tours and a special visit from Santa Claus.

Guests may visit the village’s historical houses, many of which will be decorated true to their time period, locality and lifestyle, from an elaborately decorated Victorian home, to a simply adorned 1852 log cabin.  As a tie-in to the county’s centennial celebration, tours will include information about how Pinellas County residents spent their holidays between the 1850s -1940s.

Even Santa will join in the fun, reading letters aloud that children wrote to the St. Petersburg Times in the early 1900s. “Bomb-a-Dears” who entertained soldiers locally during WW II will share their memories at the Depot where volunteers will highlight traditions from the 1940s. Visitors can also find one-of-a-kind holiday gifts at the Beach Cottage Gift Shop.

Free to children under 12; suggested minimum donation of $2 per adult.

Free parking will be available at the Pinellas County Extension, 12520 Ulmerton Road and the Heritage Village/Florida Botanical Gardens parking lot at 12211 Walsingham Road.
