Christmas at Allegany State Park

Celebrate Christmas in Allegany State Park!  The holidays are fast approaching and there's no better way to get into the holiday spirit than by spending some time in Allegany State Park!

The fun starts at 1:00 p.m. in the Red House Administration building. Stop by and hang a couple of ornaments as we decorate the big tree in the lobby. We will also have holiday crafts for the kids. From 2:00-4:00 p.m. Make your way down to the Red House Picnic Area shelter where Santa, on a short break from his duties at the North Pole, will greet kids and hear what they want for Christmas!

While waiting to see Santa, folks are invited to make a pine cone bird feeder to hang on our outdoor Christmas tree. These natural decorations will make winter survival a little easier for our winged friends here in the park! Also from 2:00-4:00 p.m. There will be games such as Snowman Snowball Toss, a nature scavenger hunt, holiday Tic-Tac-Toe and Kan Jam, and more!

Make your way back to the Administration Building for a tree lighting ceremony at 4:30 p.m. This fun-filled day culminates with a children's story read by the fireside at 4:45 p.m.
The Friends of Allegany State Park and the Allegany State Park Historical Society will be on hand to introduce folks to their organizations. Light refreshments will be provided courtesy of the Friends of Allegany State Park.

In this, the season of giving, we are asking event participants to bring a non-perishable food item to be donated to the local food pantry. This is sure to be a great day! Don't miss out!
