For the four weekends following Thanksgiving, vendors will sell their wares from rustic chalets in the Advent Market with food and music to add to the festivities. The unique Nutcrackers will stand guard in Fort Steuben Park and the Visitor Center will be a Christmas Wonderland, welcoming visitors young and old. The gift shop in the Visitor Center will offer gifts and souvenirs of the Nutcracker Village as well as our usual variety of books, toys, historical maps and old fashioned gifts.In addition: an original musical comedy, "Wooden Heart Follies."
