KRINGLE'S CHRISTMAS VILLAGE TOUR
THANKSGIVING DAY THROUGH NEW YEAR'S DAY
Antioch eagerly anticipates our newest Holiday Program for 2018. . . KRINGLE'S CHRISTMAS VILLAGE TOUR! Thanks to the generosity of Dee from Zion, Antioch is the new home of KRINGLE's CHRISTMAS VILLAGE TOUR.
You'll browse in awe at the dozens of oversized shadowboxes that are filled to the brim with quaint scenes. The holiday comes alive as you enjoy the ambiance of quaint Downtown Antioch while you enjoy meandering around town visiting our Dickens Scenes and popping under our Big Top Tent to view our various shadowbox scenes and other fun decor!
Our supersized shadowboxes rival some of the best display windows anywhere during the holidays! Each display is filled with minature fun of all aspects of life...Santa being welcomed home on Dec. 26 by Mrs. Claus while the elves have an "after Christmas" party next door (pictured here)... A salon with a reindeer under the hairdryer reading a magazine on fur styles...A shop filled with shoes and purses, in minature, that intrigue our shopping enthusiasts...Snowway which is a fun place for lunch or dinner-pick your own fillings, etc. and enjoy you meal-miniature style...and dozens more! All are lighted and most have movable figures.
This is perfect for Bus Tours and Families with Friends to enjoy! We will have a complimentary Walking Tour Brochure for you available for the Holiday of 2018. Bus Tours can enjoy the benefit of a complimentary Tour Guide for Groups of 20+ (donations appreciated). Large groups may also enjoy a Kringle Luncheon or Dinner (requires 30 days advance notice).
