Fort Stanwix to hold Annual Holiday Open House

By WKTV News

ROME, N.Y. (WKTV) - Fort Stanwix will be hosting its Annual Holiday Open House, Saturday.

Different rooms within the Fort will be arranged to represent different holiday traditions from other countries and eras.

Music from those different times will accompany the scenes to give it more of a holiday feel.

Park Rangers will also be in every room to explain the different cultures on display.

"What we like to show is that our American holiday traditions came from these different cultures that joined together at the Fort," said Park Ranger, William Sawyer. "These cultures are what, in the end, became the American people and helped create the U.S. of today."

The event takes place from 6:30 to 8:30, and will be suitable for all ages.
