JUST LIKE in the 1850s people always seem to gather by the fire. Visitors to Christmas in Coloma can get warm and then enjoy games, food and entertainment on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 14 and 15 at Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park. Democrat file photo by Shelly Thorene

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.

For more information about the event or Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park call 530-622-3470 or check out marshallgold.com.
