Santa, elves and animals from the famed Coleman Collection on display

NORFOLK, VA – Get into the holiday spirit with a visit to Slover Library and delight in the animatronic figures from the Coleman Nursery signature collection. Carolers, a singing bear trio, Santa and his elf and woodland animals come to life in this must-see holiday tradition.
   
Slover Library is proud to partner with the Portsmouth Museums Foundation to bring these classics to downtown Norfolk.  The displays are up through December 31st. 

At the Slover Library’s annual Winter Wonderland you can join in on games, crafts, music, performances and more to get you into the holiday spirit! This free day of events is December 15 from 10:00am – 4:00pm.   Don’t miss D.D. Delaney’s one man show of The Christmas Carol at 2:30 pm. 

Enter to win passes to see the rest of the Coleman Collection of animatronic figures at their Winter Wonderland in Portsmouth! 
 
In 1964, Coleman’s Nursery, in the Churchland section of Portsmouth, opened a winter woodland display that would become a renowned, must-see holiday tradition. The City of Portsmouth Museums acquired the collection in 2004 when Coleman’s closed, and now new generations of children can enjoy Santa and his helpers.
