CASPER, Wyo. — The annual holiday tradition “Candlelight Christmas at the Fort” is scheduled to begin at 5:30 pm Saturday, Dec. 7 at Fort Caspar Museum.

“Step back in time as you walk through the Fort buildings, illuminated only by candles and firelight,” the museum announced. “We will have army and civilian re-enactors to greet you out at the fort, and in the museum, enjoy free cookies and live music by the Wyoming Fiddlers Association of Casper.”

“There will also be a hands-on activity for kids, exhibits to view, holiday shopping, and more. It’s an evening of holiday magic for all ages.”
