We will start the day with a visit to Pea Ridge Forest Christmas Tree Farm. Take a hayride through fields of evergreens.  Visit with the owners, see demonstrations of wreath-making and bow-tying, and enjoy hot chocolate and cider in the gift shop. Next, we will visit Christmas Tablescapes. Come share the magic of Christmas in Hermann’s Historic Rotunda in the City Park.  Each table will be elaborately set and decorated to illustrate a unique Christmas theme. Join us for warm cider, soft carols and sparkling lights. Next we will enjoy a delicious included Lunch at the Hermann Wurst Haus. The Wurst Haus is located in historic, downtown Hermann. They have more than 60 years experience in the meat processing business and produce more than 40 varieties of fresh and smoked sausages and bratwursts. Free samples of brats and sausages will be available for tasting. Your purchases will be marked and loaded on your motorcoach for your convenience. Then we board our motorcoach for Starkenburg.  We will attend the Christmas  Concert at the beautiful, historic St. Martins Church Museum at the Shrine of Our Lady of Sorrows at Starkenburg.  The church, built in 1873 from native limestone in the area, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. What a great way to find the true spirit of Christmas!! The ladies from the Parish will have their Country Store open with homemade items for sale prior to the Concert.
