High Plains Christmas
High Plains Christmas will take place on Saturday, December 3rd, from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm at Legacy of the Plains Museum. Activities will include crafts for kids, horse drawn wagon rides, live music, Cowboy Coffee, and other great activities. There will be letter writing to Santa and then delivery of letters by Pony Express to Santa’s Village in downtown Gering. Visitors will also be able to vote for their favorite displayed trees in the Trees along the Trail Christmas tree voting contest. We have 40 local non-profit organizations decorating trees this year, with a new youth division. Votes cost $1 each, with half the total going to the organization and half going to the museum. Visitors are able to vote as many times as they want for their favorite trees. Prizes are given to the top three vote getters for each division, and the prizes are sponsored by H. R Block and Wiedeman Financial. Lunch includes homemade soups, bread and brownies ($6.00), and hot dog with chips ($5.00). Lunch is served from 11 am to 2 pm. For those wanting to tour the Museum’s exhibit hall, admissions are half-price for adults and children 18 and under are free, with a paying adult.
