It’s a beautiful time of year as we watch snow fall softly. The holiday lights twinkle in the dark skies and Christmas songs play in homes across the Quad Cities’ area. However, in an age of electronic devices, fast-paced lifestyles and brisk temperatures, it seems that many aging holiday traditions have become obsolete. This season Geneseo’s Red Barn recreates the dreams equated with Christmases past to create a winter wonderland perfect for all ages.
Filled with heart-warming food, hot cocoa, and holiday traditions, Christmas at the Red Barn keeps memories alive and families smiling with its nostalgic atmosphere. Holiday décor and beautiful lighting grace the grounds of the property, making the Red Barn one of the top sights to see in the area. Of course, you can walk around in the snow, but the event also offers free train and horse-drawn carriage rides. You can experience some quiet splendor, in a form that truly allows you to stop and take in the moment.
Hosted by the Antique Engine and Tractor Association, the holiday event takes place on Saturday, December 1st from 4-7 PM along with their annual soup supper. To participate in the soup supper, tickets are $15 for adults at the door and $5 for children under 10 years of age. The outdoor event is free of charge. The Red Barn is located at 13451 IL Highway 92 in Geneseo, Illinois. For tickets and more information, you can visit the website or call (309) 781 – 2206.
