The Castle by Candlelight
Saturdays, Dec. 15 and 22, 2012 07:00 PM - 08:30 PM

Old Fort Niagara will greet the holiday season with a bang as the historic site presents its annual Castle by Candlelight program on Saturdays, Dec. 15 and 22. The highlight of the evening will be the firing of a grand feu de joi (firing of joy) by the assembled Fort Garrison.

Inside the castle, lit entirely by candles, historic characters will regale visitors with tales of Christmas past from the 18th and 19th centuries. Demonstrations of 18th and early 19th century trades and period music will be performed. In the castle's bakery, cooks will demonstrate the preparation of a traditional holiday feast.

The Castle will be decorated for the holidays by the award-winning Youngstown Garden Club.

Programs will take place from 7 p.m. through 8:30 p.m. and the grand feu de joie will be performed at 7:30 and 8:15.

Tickets to The Castle by Candlelight are $8 per person and are available at the door. Guests are asked to dress for the weather, wear walking footwear, and bring a flashlight.
