Taking a trip back in time doesn’t require a fancy Jules Verne contraption, just a trip to Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park on Highway 49 in Coloma for Christmas n Coloma.
Visitors will see how those living in El Dorado County in the 1850s celebrated the holidays on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 14 and 15 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. each day.
There are no Black Fridays, shopping apps or continuous advertisements — just docents and volunteers recreating an old-fashioned Christmas in the heart of the Gold Country.
Old-fashioned games, crafts and entertainment are the order of the day.
Vendors will have beautiful hand-made crafts and products and a variety of foods for sale.
Santa and Mrs. Claus will be stopping by to visit with children and there will be snow.
Parking is $8 for a carload.
