This evening we enjoy an Amish buffet dinner, the dazzling “Lights of Joy” and finally, a Christmas concert by David Phelps, an American Christian vocalist and songwriter. He is best known for his spectacular tenor voice as part of the Gaither Vocal Band. With his seemingly endless vocal range and his gift for communicating a song, he’s remarkable! It will be a wonderful night!

Then we’ll have some free time before another special concert, “Let’s Hang On,” America’s #1 musical tribute to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. Featuring a live band and their mega hits like “Sherry,“ “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like A Man,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You,” and more! Tonight we will dine together on a wonderful Blue Gate family-style meal before we enjoy “A Salute to the Stars: Country Christmas” performance.

Many of the buildings are now small shops and boutiques so you might pick up a few Christmas gifts while you admire the town’s historical buildings and grab a quick bite of lunch before we continue on towards the beautiful and delightful Osthoff Resort. Here we are welcome to enjoy the authentic European-Style Christmas Market, horse drawn wagon rides, first-rate dining, splendid accommodations and unparalleled German hospitality – Just enjoy!!
