NEW CITY, N.Y. -- Parents who can remember the happy times of visiting the Jacob Blauvelt House to celebrate St. Nicholas Day can bring those special memories alive for their children when the Historical Society of Rockland County presents the annual event Saturday and Sunday  in New City.

A staple since 1961, the event inspired by Rockland County’s early Dutch Colonial heritage, is a highlight of the holiday season and a Rockland County tradition.

St. Nicholas Day programs begin at 10:30 a.m., noon, 1:30 and 3 p.m. each day and last about 45 minutes. Admission to the program is $5 per person (children and adults). Each child receives a special treat from St. Nicholas in his or her shoe, and everyone can visit with St. Nicholas and his horse. Refreshments will be served. Space is limited, and prepaid reservations are required.

Information and ticket are available at www.RocklandHistory.org . St. Nicholas Day ticket prices includes admission to the 41st annual holiday exhibition, “Let It Snow! Rockland in Wintertime.”

The historic Jacob Blauvelt House is at 20 Zukor Road, New City.
