Christmas cheer will reign supreme as the holiday spirit descends on the Heritage Center and H. Earl Clack Museum Saturday, Dec. 11, from 2-5 p.m. for the annual Christmas Open House.
Santa Claus will be making a special appearance at the event and will be bringing a candy treat for all his little friends.
Keith Lokensgard will add the sound of music to the festivities by performing Christmas carols during the event.
Refreshments will also be served during the open house.
Also available will be free tours of the building conducted by building manager Myrna Whitelaw.
The H. Earl Clack Museum will be open during the open house as will the Art Gallery.
There will also be a reception for Havre Artist, Arlene Morgan, and visitors can stop in, meet the artist, and view her works that will be on display through the rest of the month and January.
The North Star Dance Studio will also be giving dance demonstrations and routines in the old court room on the third floor of the Heritage Center and visitors are welcome.
Stocking stuffer gift ideas can also be found at Studio 203 and the French Curl on the second floor of the Heritage Center where visitors can also register for door prizes.
