Fantasyland — 2017, the Society’s annual event of holiday displays and special music and story programs is being held at new location this year, the O. Winston Link and History Museums, 101 Shenandoah Ave. NE, across from Hotel Roanoke.

Beginning Nov. 24, two types of public programs are planned: 10 a.m. Sing-a-Long for toddlers; 11 a.m. and noon programs for older children.The programs are scheduled for  Nov. 24 and 25; De. 2, 9, 16, 19, 20, 21. Lots of photo opportunities.

This tradition dates to the 1970s and again this year will feature the same Santa known to many youngsters now grown. Santa sings and tells stories to teach the true value of Christmas.
