The Sedona Heritage Museum is hosting their annual "Christmas in the Park" free open house on Saturday, Dec. 8, from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. The event extends free admission to the museum and a day filled with special free activities as a holiday gift to residents and visitors.

Visitors will be treated to hot apple cider, holiday cookies and free entertainment and activities. A fire will burn in the red rock fireplace of the old Jordan house and the museum will be decorated in vintage holiday decor. A tumbleweed 'snowman' will greet all guests.

Sedona old-timers and descendants of local pioneer families, including one of the Jordan children, Pat Schnebly Ceballos (Sedona's granddaughter), and Patty Fox (ranch wife), will all be in the Museum exhibit rooms telling stories about early Sedona. Guests are also invited to the activity room where volunteers will help them make a cornhusk doll ornament.

Enjoy a free holiday music concert at 1 p.m. in the historic Fruit Packing Shed with a performance by Cactus Cats. This program of holiday-themed music will include opportunities to sing-a-long with your Christmas favorites. The Packing Shed is heated for concert-goers.

Museum admission, concert and all activities are free.

A special signing of DVDs of "Sedona-the Movie" will take place with the film's creator and director, Tommy Stovall and with an appearance by the youngest star, Trevor Stovall.

There will also be several simultaneous book-signings by local authors: Pat Naville will be signing his new western classic "Cripple Creek", an Amazon Top 100 Best Seller and his first book "Echo Whispers"; Julie McDonald will be signing her volume two of "Unbreakable Dolls-True Stories of Amazing Pioneer Women" which includes a chapter on Sedona's own Ruth Jordan; Roger Naylor will be signing his "Arizona Kicks on Route 66" along with local photographer Larry Lindahl; and F. Ruth Jordan Van Epps will be signing her "Following their Westward Star" book about the family that built the Sedona Heritage Museum buildings.

Holiday shopping in the Museum's Gift Shop will be a "must do," as you take advantage of the shop's annual sale. The Gift Shop carries many items made by local artists and crafters, along with many gifts for both kids and adults.

The Sedona Heritage Museum is on the National Register of Historic Places, and located at 735 Jordan Road in Jordan Historical Park in Uptown Sedona. For more information, call the museum at (928) 282-7038.
