Christmas is here, which means local festivities have been popping up all around Western New York, including at the Sanborn-Lewiston Farm Museum.

Next, the Christmas Carols at the Farm event will be hosted at 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17, at the Sanborn-Lewiston Farm Museum Hall, 2660 Saunders Settlement Road.

The family-friendly event is open to the public. Featured will be carolers and sing-along opportunities as well as holiday treats, including cookies, hot chocolate, tea and coffee.

Last weekend, the Sanborn Historical Society and Sanborn Business and Professional Association hosted the annual Christmas at the Farm event.

To the delight of visitors, Santa was on hand to visit with children atop a vintage, 150-year-old sleigh and Olaf the snowman from Disney's "Frozen" stopped by.

The event also featured Heartland horse-drawn carriage rides, vintage holiday displays, cookie-frosting, crafts for kids, a basket auction and the holiday gift shop.

"Everything went very, very well," said Bonnie Haskell, Sanborn-Lewiston Farm Museum curator. "We were very pleased."

Overall, Haskell said the event "Was our 'thank you' to the community for supporting the museum and the business association during the year with all the festivities that we have."

Children and families gather to make crafts, decorate cookies and shop.
