We begin our Christmas Celebration with a stop at Schimpff’s Confectionery. This unique confectionery in Jeffersonville’s downtown historic district comes complete with a 50’s soda fountain and original tin ceiling. The old-fashioned candy jars, cases, and turn-of-the century equipment transport you back to the good old days of home-made candy and a real fountain drink. Enjoy watching them make their handmade candy canes and browsing amidst thousands of pieces of American candy memorabilia.
Christmas at the Galt House Hotel will feature a sampling of KaLightoscope luminary vignettes on display throughout the hotel. Enjoy interactive and magical luminaries handcrafted by Chinese artisans from Zigong, China. View the full-size gingerbread house in the beautiful Conservatory.
We’ll visit Frazier History Museum to see their special holiday exhibit – Nutcracker: The Exhibition, 60 Years of Magic and Majesty. A visual walk through tantalizing sets and costumes of beautiful Nutcracker productions including handmade nutcrackers, photographs and other artifacts. Hands-on interactive activities further allow you to explore the history and magic of this enchanting ballet.
You may also visit any of their permanent exhibits including The Stewart Toy Soldier Gallery, where you’ll find one of the largest collections of historic miniatures on public display in the world.
During the Holidays they transform Louisville Mega Cavern into an underground holiday light spectacular. It’s said to be the only underground holiday light show in the world featuring over 2,000,000 points of light and 850 theme characters with animation set to holiday music. This is a great way to begin the Holiday Season as we ride aboard our motorcoach through this one-of-a-kind holiday attraction filled with sights and sounds of the holiday season!
