For the sixth 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. Held this year on Saturday, December 12 from 5 to 8 pm, guests will be treated to a variety of live performances, including the Accidentals & Naturals, Nantucket High School’s honor chorus; selections from “The Nutcracker” by Nantucket Ballet; and a “Magical Mermaid Holiday Extravaganza” by Karen Lee of DanceWorks. The event also features a fun photobooth; plenty of arts & crafts activities, costumed holiday characters, and delicious winter treats in the Holiday Café.
“A Night of Holiday Magic has become one of our most beloved programs here at the Whaling Museum,” says Marjan Shirzad, NHA Director of Visitor Experience. “Welcoming visitors of all ages for this special evening community event gives the NHA staff a great deal of joy during the busy holiday season. The laughter and communal merriment that can be heard throughout our halls amidst the Festival of Trees captures the true spirit of the season. We can’t wait for this year’s program and hope to see lots of familiar and new faces in the museum!”
A Night of Holiday Magic is free for all children and NHA members and only $5 for adults. This NHA holiday program is made possible with support from ReMain Nantucket, an island-based organization committed to supporting the evolution of a healthy, year round community on Nantucket that flourishes in its iconic downtown.
