Christmas on the Ranch
Open to the public. Once again, the community of El Dorado is invited to share the Spirit of Christmas with the children and families, the staff, and the Board of HOPE Landing. “Christmas on the Ranch” is a Christmastime Open House for everyone. Located on the property of HOPE Landing at 214 Hope Landing (5 miles east of El Dorado on Hwy 82 East), the two-hour event will take place Saturday, December 14th from 3-5 p.m. Children of all ages and their families can enjoy the beauty of the ranch while they visit Santa at the Santa Claus Cottage, make crafts at Santa’s Workshop, play games, pet, and read Christmas stories to Santa’s reindeer at the Reindeer Barn, and enjoy a “sleigh ride” while sipping on warm cocoa at the Reindeer Crossing. You may purchase crafts made by the children at HOPE Landing. There will be live music. There will be a Steak Cook-off Association SCA sanctioned steak cook-off. Steak plate tickets will be available for sale for $20 per plate before the event with plate pick up at 5:00 pm.
