— Shoppers conclude their day by a 4 p.m. deadline, stopping off at George Henry’s tavern, where they bid on the gifts with their raffle tickets, while they enjoy live music.

“This is a great beginning to a great holiday season in Warrensburg,” she said, referring to the lineup of events through December — including the 25th anniversary of Christmas in Warrensburgh, set for Saturday Dec. 7 and Sunday Dec. 8. This festival has new features on Saturday of an indoor holiday craft market and mule-drawn wagon rides at the town Senior Center, a living nativity from noon to 4 p.m. at Alexander Funeral Home, plus the traditiional Saturday attractions of children’s craft workshops from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and a Christmas tree lighting ceremony at 6 p.m. with live holiday music.

On Sunday Dec. 8, a Holiday Craft Fair featuring a wide variety of artisans is to be held at Echo Lake Lodge. The Warrrensburgh Museum of Local History will be holding a reception on both days, as people visit their Doll House & Room Box exhibit that has generated considerable regional interest.

Another highlight of the holiday calendar is to be held Thursday Dec. 5 — Local people involved in the sustainable living movement will be sharing creative home-cooked local food then browsing among locally produced crafts at the Adirondack Cooperative Economy Christmas Market & Pot Luck. The event is set for 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Free Methodist Church on River St..

That day also features the annual Warrensburgh Historical Society Holiday Dinner, scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at Lizzie Keays Restaurant.

Most of the secular holiday events conclude on Dec. 14 when Santa visits the Warrensburg firehouse from noon to 2 p.m.

On the spiritual side — the town’s many churches, of course, will be holding an array of services through Christmas Day.
