Norton celebrates the holiday season with its annual Holiday Family Festival
Enjoy art, dance, music, magic, and more!
Once again, the Norton Museum of Art’s annual, entertainment-filled Holiday Family Festival offers families a joyous way to kick off the winter season. Set for Sunday, Dec. 8, 2013, the Festival features music and dance performances, a magic troupe, art activities and tours, treasure hunts, storytelling, and more. Regular Museum admission applies. The merriment occurs from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., but the Museum café, Fratelli Lyon, will be serving a holiday brunch beginning at 11 a.m.
“Each year, the Holiday Family Festival presents terrific performers from our area,” says Glenn Tomlinson, the Norton’s William Randolph HearstCurator of Education. “Visitors are thrilled by the quality of the musicians and dancers, and they love the activities and family tours that take place throughout the Museum.”
Visitors are sure to be uplifted by the graceful dancers of the Palm Beach Atlantic Dance Ensemble and the sounds of Women of Note. The House of Flying Cards is also set to thrill with its bag of tricks and illusion. Storyteller Monica Ladd will share exciting tales, and the St. Edwards Children’s Choir and Maltz Jupiter Theatre Youth Touring Company will sing holiday classics. Complimentary refreshments come courtesy of Whole Foods Market. And the Museum Store is offering Norton Members a 20-percent discount and free gift wrapping.
