On Sunday, December 6th at noon, check out St. Nikolaus Festival at the Athenaeum (401 East Michigan Street, Indianapolis).
Tickets are $8 for children 12 years and younger and adults are free! Buy your tickets in advance here for traditional Christmas fun. What a great deal for all of the family fun you see below!
Enjoy a puppet show and traditional holiday singing and dancing. Children will also have the opportunity to add their names to the Saint Nikolaus book of names that keeps the name and age of every child who has visited St. Nikolaus since 1985.
The Old-World St. Nikolaus is celebrated in German-speaking countries and in Holland and Belgium as well, where he will go from house to house in the evening, and reward good children with little gifts. He may be followed by a Krampus or a Ruprecht who may dole out switches to those children who misbehaved during the year.
Tickets for this family event can be purchased in advance at athfound.org. All proceeds from this fundraising benefit will go toward the care and maintenance of the historic Athenaeum.
