Sinterklass (Saint Nicholas Day) at the Wyckoff House Museum
Sip hot cider, play some colonial games, create a holiday pomander, decorate a Dutch clog for Sinterklaas, and help dress the tree. The lighting of the tree will close the day as the sun goes down.
Children will enjoy a special visit from St. Nicholas as he arrives on horseback around 2:30pm. St. Nicholas will tell the traditional tale of The Bakers Dozen and children are invited to sign the Red Book.
To respect social distancing guidelines, photos with St. Nicholas will not be available this year. Families are encouraged to take photos in the holiday-themed photo booth as an alternative.
