Family, friends, kids, Oregonians! It’s time to have a little fun and maybe laugh a little. On Saturday, December 17, the Cannon Beach History Center and Museum welcomes you to their annual holiday and appreciation event. Between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. the museum will offer a series of fun festivities, tasty treats, and even a raffle!

Enjoy hot chocolate, apple cider, delicious Sleepy Monk coffee, and even a delightful holiday punch. The museum staff will have homemade cupcakes, brownies, and other tasty treats for you to enjoy.

Bring the kiddos for story time at 1:00 p.m. when Executive Director, Elaine Trucke and Archivist, Liz Johnson read from their favorite holiday tomes. The kids will also love the museum’s own Christmas Banana.

“Everyone has a Santa,” says director Elaine Trucke, “we have the Christmas Banana.” While the story behind the potassium carrying holiday loving character is a bit unclear, one can’t help but be curious.

In addition to the Christmas Banana, museum staff will be sporting their favorite holiday ugly sweaters all day. Enjoy a relaxing coloring session or learn some unique Cannon Beach history. The coloring contest will have an adult competition group – let’s get artsy! As well as a teen group 13-19, kids 4-11, and the abstract stylings of ages three and below.

Don’t miss the free raffle! Everyone that visits the museum on Saturday, December 17 will automatically be entered to win a Terrible Tilly Hoodie or basket of goodies from Bruce’s Candy Kitchen (one entry per person.) Not to mention, everything in the Museum’s gift shop will be 40% off for active members! Sounds like a perfect holiday treat!
