November 9, 2018

In one of our recent blogs we covered all the fantastic Wonderland Weekend events in Carlisle, PA and thought we'd share some Pennsylvania-centric gift ideas for the upcoming holidays! Wrap a big bow around a gift certificate for a special getaway at Pheasant Field Bed and Breakfast and kick it up a notch by enclosing tickets to nearby concerts, plays, and other various fun here in Cumberland County, PA! We put together a short list comprised of five different holiday events happening through the end of 2018 that would prove to be an exciting addition to any gift this season!


The Nutcracker Performance by the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet –
Only about 15 minutes away from us lies the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, an internationally renowned school that enriches young lives through classical dance. The school will be holding performances of The Nutcracker at the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts December 15 & 16, and the Hershey Theatre December 22 & 23. The famously brilliant Tchaikovsky music and time-honored ballet is not one to be missed this season, so purchase your tickets now!

The Man Who Saved Christmas Performance at The Playhouse at Allenberry Resort
The Man Who Saved Christmas is a heartwarming musical based on a true story during World War I about a man who acts to keep the U.S. government from banning the sales of toys during wartime. It is surely a tale not to be missed this season! The Playhouse at Allenberry Resort, only 10 minutes from us, will be performing the musical multiple times from November 23 to December 16, so there's plenty of time to choose the right date for you! Purchase tickets here.

Twas the Night Before Christmas Performance at the Little Theatre of Mechanicsburg
The Little Theatre of Mechanicsburg is in their 68th season of performances and will be showing ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas from November 30 to December 16 this holiday season. This adorable comedy about a mouse, a girl, and an elf is sure to get everyone's Christmas spirit humming! The Theatre is only 12 minutes from us at Pheasant Field Bed and Breakfast and is a must see, so pick up your tickets now!

Other Events-
Maybe a musical performance doesn't suit your fancy... and that's just fine! Here are two other fun ideas to celebrate the holidays in Cumberland County, PA.

A Dickens of a Tea at Camellia's Sin Tea Parlor –
Camellia's Sin Tea Parlor is a favorite right here in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, for amazingly delicious and aromatic teas! Every year they hold ‘a Dickens of a Tea', an event that celebrates the holidays in a fun and fashionable way. Here you have a medley of mouth-watering goodies such as scones, pastries, sandwiches, and soups to complement any tea of your choice! The Tea Parlor also boasts a plentiful gift shop with even more goodies to bring home to your friends and family for the holidays. Make your reservation to this enjoyable event here and look forward to a fancy and very merry tea date!

Hersheypark Christmas Candylane
Looking for something a bit more thrilling? Something to get your blood pumping and give you a legitimate reason to be outdoors this winter? Look no further than the annual Hersheypark Christmas Candylane! Hersheypark is a fun place to visit at any point in the year, but it is never as magical as when they put up the brilliant Christmas lights and have Santa stay at the reindeer stables! Guests have the opportunity to enjoy all their favorite rides with a new festive flair, get in the holiday spirit with choreographed light shows and Hershey Sweet Lights, and of course, enjoy a meal with Santa and Mrs. Claus themselves! Hersheypark is only a hop, skip, and a jump away from us here at Pheasant Field Bed and Breakfast and you can purchase tickets to the holiday event here! Note: The Christmas Candylane event runs from November 16, 2018 to January 1, 2019.

Although Cumberland County offers much during the Christmas season, we at Pheasant Field Bed and Breakfast simply look forward to spending our holiday season with you all here! A stay at our comfortable Bed and Breakfast will prove to be the perfect getaway this winter, whether you choose to participate in the extra holiday activities or not.
