NANTUCKET, MA – The Nantucket Historical Association (NHA) is pleased to announce A Night of Holiday Magic, an all-ages, community holiday celebration on Saturday, December 10, 2016, at the Whaling Museum, 13 Broad Street from 5–8 P.M.

For the seventh year in a row, A Night of Holiday Magic will capture the essence of the season for Nantucket families and friends among the Festival of Trees in the Whaling Museum, and offer an array of family-fun activities for all to enjoy. Guests will be treated to an array of live performances, including holiday songs by the Accidentals & Naturals, Nantucket High School’s honor chorus and selections from “The Nutcracker” by the youth dancers of Nantucket Ballet.  

This holiday program also features a festive photobooth from Nantucket Photobooth; plenty of arts & crafts throughout the museum, a holiday I-Spy activity, costumed holiday characters, and delicious winter treats in the Holiday Café in the Discovery Room.

A Night of Holiday Magic is free for all children and all NHA members and only $5 for adults.

A Night of Holiday Magic has become one of our most beloved programs here at the Whaling Museum,” says Marjan Shirzad, NHA Sacerdote Chair of Education and Outreach. “Welcoming visitors of all ages for this special evening community event gives the NHA staff a great deal of joy during the busy holiday season. The laughter and communal merriment heard throughout our halls amidst the Festival of Trees captures the true spirit of the season. We can’t wait for this year’s program and hope to see lots of familiar and new faces alike!”

This NHA holiday program is made possible with support from the Community Foundation’s ReMain Nantucket Fund.
