Holiday stories with Santa at Old State Capitol

SPRINGFIELD — The Old State Capitol State Historic Site will be filled with music, laughing children, stories and Santa’s “ho ho ho” this month.

On Dec. 20, children can enjoy a special evening with games, crafts, stories and visits with Santa Claus. The second annual “Holiday Stories with Santa” takes place throughout the Old State Capitol, and kids are encouraged to wear pajamas as they listen to stories or play games.

Members of the Lincoln family will read Christmas stories, and Santa will pose for pictures in Representative Hall. Cocoa and snacks will be available.

The event will begin at 6:00 p.m. and end at 9:00 p.m.

An entire family can attend for just $10. The price drops to $5 for any families that donate a book to be distributed through area organizations.

Tickets may be purchased through Dec. 19 at Tinsley Dry Goods, 209 S. Sixth St., Springfield, IL. The shop can be contacted at TinsleyDry or 217-525-1825. Covered parking is available until 9 p.m. at 75 cents per half-hour at the underground garage beneath the Old State Capitol.

The Old State Capitol State Historic Site, administered by the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, is a reconstruction of Illinois’ fifth statehouse. The site is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily with tours available during open hours. For more information, call (217) 785-7960.
