A special “Superstition Holidays” celebration is in full swing at Superstition Mountain Museum, 4087 N. Apache Trail (Highway 88), 3 miles northeast of Apache Junction.

The 15-acre site is full of Christmas decorations and attractions appealing to both children and adults, according to a release.

“Come and enjoy a step back in time in the Apacheland Barn, transformed for the holidays to whisk visitors to a time and place when life and Christmas celebrations were simple and heartfelt,” according to the release.

The barn is “Christmas Central” this season at the museum, surrounded by lights and decorations on the grounds.

Other events set for Dec. 8 include two Stamp Mill demonstrations, one at 11 a.m. and the second at 1 p.m.
