The Nantucket Historical Association (NHA) is pleased to announce A Night of Holiday Magic, an all-ages, community holiday celebration sponsored by ReMain Nantucket, on Saturday, December 14, 2013, at the Whaling Museum, 13 Broad Street from 5 – 8 P.M.

For the fourth year in a row, A Night of Holiday Magic will capture the essence of the season for Nantucket families and friends among the Festival of Trees in the Whaling Museum, and offer an array of family-fun activities for all to enjoy. Guests will be treated to a youth ballet performance by Danceworks of Nantucket, live musical performances and holiday sing-alongs, an I-Spy activity, a festive photobooth by Nantucket Photobooth, plenty of arts & crafts activities, seasonal storytelling, and delicious winter treats. Tree designers whose talents are featured in the Festival of Trees will also be on hand to guide the creation of ornaments and other crafts.

A Night of Holiday Magic is free for all children and NHA members and only $5 for nonmember adults.
