LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- A free, online event called Holiday Traditions will be presented at the Old State House Museum on Facebook at 1 p.m. on Sunday, December 6.

The Museum, in the past, has welcomes huge crowds for Holiday Open House for visitors to enjoy holiday decorations, snack on festive treats, create crafts, and listen to live music. Because gathering in large crowds is not possible due to ongoing concerns of COVID-19, the museum is bringing the celebration for Arkansans online.
