Children's Free Candlelight Evening

November 17, 2017

4:30 PM to 7:30 PM

The Paine is pleased to announce a Children's Free Candlelight Evening, courtesy of Verve, a Credit Union.

The Paine and Verve invite children to come and see Nutcracker in the Castle on the opening evening, Friday, November 17 for free. The Paine will be open from 4:30-7:30 PM for candlelight tours, and children, ages 17 and under, will be admitted for free with a paid adult admission ($12 adult admission; limit of five free children per one paid adult admission; free admission for Members). Children must be accompanied by an adult. No reservation is necessary.

As part of the evening, families are invited to donate a toy (new and unwrapped) for Toys for Tots. Kids will place the donated toys under the giant Christmas tree as they begin their visit. 

To make your season extra jolly, Verve will be providing a professional photographer from 4:30 to 7:30 to capture your family photo completely free of charge. Once you have your photo taken, you’ll receive information on how to view, share and download your photo. Getting a family photo taken for your holiday card is as easy as that, and it’s FREE.
