Sinterklaas is Jarig! Who was St. Nicholas? Why does he visit Belgian and Dutch children on Dec. 6 and his helper is not an elf? When did this tradition come to the U.S.? Learn about the history and traditions of St. Nick, cookie boards, wooden shoes, and music. Temporary and permanent exhibits that interpret local area history and culture will also be available. Hands-on activities. No charge.
