SnowFest 2021

On December 12th, the Wicoff House Museum held its second annual SnowFest event! Along with the Youth Advisory Council, we celebrated the winter season with members of the public.

Inside the museum, people wandered through brightly decorated exhibits and completed activities such as scavenger hunts and snow-themed crafts.

On the front lawn, people enjoyed snow cones and hot chocolate, and even roasted marshmallows for s’mores!

Behind the men and on the left side of multiple tracks are wooden buildings. In the background is a bridge crossing over the tracks.

One craft was located outside, where people painted their own winter scenes by the tall pine tree.

The most exciting part of the day was when both Santa Claus and The Grinch came down the chimney and greeted all the children! The falling snow really made the visit feel extra magical.

Overall, it was a fun and successful event to close out 2021! The Wicoff House Museum would like to thank all of the wonderful volunteers, including, but not limited to, the Plainsboro Fire Department, Police Department, Rescue Squad, and of course, the Youth Advisory Council! We could not have done it without you.

Happy Holidays!
