Every time a bell rings, a LEGO fan gets a set! Celebrate the 75th anniversary of one of the most beloved, timeless holiday movies of all time by immortalizing it further as the next LEGO Ideas model. The proposed “It’s A Wonderful LEGO Life” set comes with a fully detailed, modular reproduction of the old Granville house where each floor can be removed to relive the magic of the most touching scenes in the film. The famous truss bridge, George’s 1919 car, and the “You Are Now In Bedford Falls” sign round out the fun in this fully playable package that would also make for the perfect holiday display. 
Santa Letter Writing activity for kids: Kids can come and write letters to Santa or drop off their letters in our North Pole Express Mailbox.
The Jimmy Stewart Museum will have a table where you can learn about the hometown and life of the actor that portrayed George Bailey.
TWO NEW EXHIBITS: “Rooted in History” an exhibit about the museum founders and their family tree, and “Does this Ring a Bell? The remarkable similarities between Seneca Falls and Bedford Falls”
Saturday, December 11th from 3-5pm Martin Petrillo will be playing a selection of covers and holiday music.
