11242010-charles-pettee.gifThe Museum of the Cape Fear Historical Complex will usher in another joyous holiday season with its 10th annual Holiday Jubilee on Sunday, Dec. 5 from 1-5 p.m. The event is a well-loved tradition of music, food and festivities that North Carolina residents look forward to all year.

Visitors will be awed at the beautiful and lush decorations as they tour the historic Poe House. The Poe House kitchen staff will prepare a meal on an authentic stove dating back to the 1800s, bringing delicious seasonal treats for children and adults.

Children will also enjoy taking part in the wintertime scavenger hunt or join their parents in making and taking home a traditional Victorian present.

Heidi Bleazy, education coordinator for the Cape Fear Historical Complex said, “This is such a fun time for families, scout groups, anyone welcoming the holiday season. I cannot wait to hear the wonderful music and the cooking demonstration on the 1897 wood burning stove.”

The seasonal sounds will be brought by musical guest Charles Pettee, who will delight the audience with a tasty blend of original and traditional American Folk, Bluegrass and Celtic music. Multi-talented as a singer and musically adept at banjo, harmonica, guitar and mandolin, Pettee will provide the perfect holiday sounds, while the Poe House will provide the perfect visual backdrop. Pettee will perform at 1:30, 2:30 and 3:30 p.m.

Bleazy thinks that this year will be as successful and enjoyable as in past years. “This is our 10th anniversary of having the Holiday Jubilee at the museum, and I hope to see a lot of folks come out and be a part of this great time.”

Share this event with those you cherish. There will be so much for the whole family to hear, see and do. Make this years Holiday Jubilee a part of your seasonal celebrations. The Holiday Jubilee is a free, family-friendly event for all to enjoy.
