Step back in time and spread old fashioned holiday cheer at the 14th Annual Rancho Christmas at Rancho Guajome Adobe in Vista Saturday, November 27 and Sunday, November 28 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The adobe’s 28 rooms and two large courtyards have been transformed into a hacienda hideaway that replicates the holidays of the 1800s. More than one hundred wreaths, garlands and centerpieces made out of natural materials will adorn the restored historic adobe.
Children will delight in a variety of hands-on crafts and activities, such as making cornhusk dolls, caramel apples and homemade candles. Kids can also hop aboard a tractor-drawn wagon or view demonstrations of blacksmithing and wool spinning. Park visitors can enjoy live music, dancing and beverages.
Saturday evening guests can enjoy an expanded celebration including hot cider and the warm glow of luminaries in the courtyard, while listening to the sweet sounds of Christmas caroling.
Tickets for the Rancho Christmas festivities are $5 for adults; $3 for children 4 to 12. Children 3 years and under are free. Proceeds will be directed to the Hacienda Antiquities Fund for the parlor’s furnishings.
Rancho Guajome Adobe is located at 2210 North Santa Fe in Vista. Parking is free.
