My Old Kentucky Home hosts ‘A Christmas Carol’ and ‘The Gifts of Attention’

My Old Kentucky Home State Park and its musical cast will perform Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” four evenings this month.

Federal Hill will be decorated for Christmas and guests will meet Charles Dickens, Ebenezer Scrooge, the ghost of Marley and the spirits of Christmas past, present and future.

Hear and see carolers in Victorian hoop skirts and tailcoats, beautifully decorated Christmas trees, garlands, mistletoe, stockings full of toys, the annual gingerbread model of the historic mansion made by our chefs and more.

“A Christmas Carol” will be presented 6-9 p.m., tonight through Saturday, and Dec. 15-17. Tickets are $16 for adults and $12 for children ages 2-12.

My Old Kentucky Home State Park and Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest will host Wren Smith and “The Gifts of Attention” Friday night and the night of Dec. 15.

Smith, the interpretive programs manager at Bernheim and an artist, creates miniature figures from natural products. She will tell stories about them 6-9 p.m. in the Magnolia Room across from the visitor center. This event is free.

My Old Kentucky Home State Park is also hosting daily Merry and Bright tours for the holidays through Dec. 31. The park will be closed Dec. 24-29.
