CAP Winter Field Trip to Old Sturbridge Village

If you can't beat em, join em. Winter is coming whether we like it or not! CAP is fighting against just staying indoors until it is over. Sooooo... come out and join us for a festive fun time on Friday, December 5th, 2014, before we get too busy preparing for the Holidays!! Escape the frenzy of our modern Christmas with an enchanted evening of gingerbread, roasted chestnuts, music, dance, and a sleigh ride around the town square. Meet Father Christmas and chat with Santa Claus. Enjoy strolling carolers around the town in vintage clothing. There are endless opportunities to photograph quaint buildings and doorways with your tripod (no tripods allowed inside the buildings, however). Period characters involved in preparing for an old fashioned Christmas are fun to photograph both inside and out.
