2nd Annual Atalaya Holiday Celebrations

This year’s Atalaya Holiday Celebration will be greatly expanded from last year’s event. The living quarters of the home consisted of 30 rooms. These rooms, along with Mrs. Huntington’s sculpture studio will be decorated in holiday motif for the celebration by local groups and designers. Each group will be using their own knowledge and interpretation of the era, the South, and the Holidays for their decorations. Competition will be spirited for the “People’s Choice Award” and visitors will enjoy voting on their favorite for this award.

Other activities include Grandma’s Kitchen where visitors can enjoy hot, spiced cider along with homemade goodies which will be for sale individually or in gift packages. (These holiday goodies are being made by some of the finest Southern cooks around and will give you a great opportunity to skip your own baking for the holidays!)

The Holiday crafts and gifts, contributed by members of the Friends group and their friends, will be an excellent way for visitors to get a head start on your holiday shopping.

A “mini” Oyster Roast will be available, for $10.00, for visitors who wish to try an area favorite.

Live entertainment will add to the Holiday atmosphere throughout the day. Performers include: the Pawleys Island Concert Band, Serendipity Singers, Waccamaw High School Musicians, Jill Trinka of Trinka Folk Music, Duo Inglis, the Hand Bell Choir of the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection and Gwyn Fowler.

The Lionel Train Club will have their trains on display. These exhibits and “remembering the good ole days” always add to the holiday spirit for young and old alike.

Children will be able to make Holiday Crafts for their own homes in a special section set up for them.

Roving Actors will be portraying Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington. Bring your family and don’t forget your camera as this will be a great opportunity to have your holiday picture taken!

We suggest that you dress warmly as Atalaya is not heated
