The Yellow Trail Museum in Hope will be holding its annual Christmas of Yesteryear on the Hope Town Square, starting at 5 p.m. Friday evening.

Barb Johnson, with the museum, says that this is the 15th year for the annual event.

The festivities will feature strolling carolers, carriage rides and Santa Claus at the Sweet Chiropractic Office. There will also be a live nativity on the square put on by Hope First Baptist Church.

Johnson said there will be crafts, a bake sale and cookie decorating at the Yellow Trail Museum itself, on the northwest corner of the Town Square. Hauser students will also be talking about the Moravian Church traditions carried on by the town.

For the first time, this year’s event will include fireworks starting at 8:45 p.m.  Friday night. Those fireworks were held over from Hope Heritage Days, in September, when the fireworks were canceled due to the hot dry weather.
