Owls Head Transportation Museum holds its annual Holidays at the Museum event Sunday, Dec. 6, starting at 10 a.m. The event is an all-day affair and admission is free to everyone. In 2014 more than 600 visitors turned out for the occasion.

Children are invited to bring their letters to Santa or write a letter at the museum. Letter writing, ornament crafting, cookie decorating and coloring stations will be open from 11 a.m. until noon, when Santa will arrive from the North Pole by air, having temporarily traded his team of reindeer for the museum’s 1978 Piper Super Cub.

From 12:15 until 12:50 p.m., letters from children will be collected while Santa reads a favorite Christmas story. After the reading, the children’s letters will be packed in a special “Polar Air Mail” mailbag and picked up in the museum’s 1930 Model A Mail Truck. Visitors are invited to head outside to watch as the Piper Super Cub, piloted by one of Santa’s helpers, departs Owls Head en route to the North Pole with the holiday letters on board. The plane takes off from the museum’s Runway 17 at 1 p.m., weather permitting.

Once the letters are safely on their way, Santa will lead the children back inside and introduce the Mid-Coast Community Band with its annual holiday concert from 1:30 to 3:15 p.m. Complimentary refreshments will be offered during intermission.

A 20 percent discount will be observed on all in-store museum store purchases Saturday, Dec. 5, and Sunday, Dec. 6, and museum members will receive a 30 percent discount.

No pets are allowed on museum or show grounds. For further information, visit owlshead.org or contact Owls Head Transportation Museum Public Relations Director Jenna Lookner at 594-4418 or by email at jl@ohtm.org.
