SLAYTON - The Murray County Historical Museum and Dinehart Holt House, Slayton, are hosting a Holiday Parade of Trees and treasured Vintage Toy Display, with an open house planned from 1 to 4 p.m., Nov. 29. Hot cider, coffee and homemade Christmas goodies will be served during the open house, and live music will be performed.
Dozens of trees were individually decorated at both locations by local organizations and individuals to help raise funds for the museum. Visitors can vote for their favorite tree by placing money in a jar beside each tree. The tree with the highest “votes” keeps the donations for their organization. The rest of the donations go to help the Murray County Historical Society provide programs and care for the collections.
New this year will be a treasured Vintage Toy Display. Many community members have shared their treasured toys to be displayed throughout the Christmas season. Each toy is displayed with its own unique and personal history
All of the trees and toys will be on display from Nov. 29 through Dec. 31.
