The Issaquah History Museums will host its annual holiday open house Dec. 4 at the Issaquah Train Depot, 50 Rainier Boulevard North.

The free public event will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be homemade cookies, coffee, and cocoa, as well as activities for the whole family to enjoy. Live music provided by the Essie Blue musicians will also add to the festive atmosphere.

Local crafters will be at the Depot to sell hand-made items. Santa Claus also will be available to chat with children and have pictures taken. Children may visit with Santa from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. People are encouraged to bring their camera for a photo.

While waiting for Santa, kids will have an opportunity to do a craft based on old-fashioned holiday ornaments in the Issaquah History Museums’ collection.

The activity is free, although parents are asked to register their children in advance to ensure enough supplies will be on hand.

More information or to register children is available at 425-392-3500 or volunteer@issaquahhistory.org.
