This weekend is all about holiday traditions in York County.
It starts with an unforgettable feast, includes a classic Christmas story and culminates with a couple of holiday experiences you can only see here in York County.
Here are three ways to spend your weekend and still have enough time to get home and put out the milk and cookies.
Friday: Indulge in a traditional Italian holiday tradition
Start your weekend by gathering with friends and family for seven exceptional courses of Italian-inspired seafood during the Feast of the Seven Fishes at Tutoni's, one of York's dining hotspots.
Reservations are required, and the dinner is $95 per person. Add an optional wine pairing for $45.
Afterward, stroll to Continental Square for a look at York's Christmas tree and festive holiday lights.
Saturday: Watch a holiday classic on Christmas Eve
Dress the kids in their favorite holiday pajamas and take them to see the holiday classic, The Polar Express, at the North Museum of Nature and Science in Lancaster, about a half an hour's drive from York.
They'll immerse themselves in the movie's snowy world in the digital SciDome Theater and have the chance to check out a variety of cool train-inspired activities, including a model train display and learning about the anthracite coal that powered locomotives.
The movie starts at noon. Regular admission prices apply.
Sunday: Start Christmas Day with the Glen Rock Carolers
At the stroke of midnight, the Glen Rock Carolers will officially usher in Christmas during a holiday tradition that led Only in Your State to place the town among its list of the most enchanting and magical Christmas Towns in Pennsylvania.
The group of caped carolers will set off across the streets of Glen Rock, attracting a crowd while singing traditional holiday songs. The roving show starts at the traffic light at the intersection of Manchester, Hanover, Main and Baltimore streets. Follow along and enjoy the peanuts handed out in advance of each stop.
For another option unique to York County, hang out in Downtown York and listen for the steam whistle concert starting shortly after midnight.
