RICHMOND — Richmond’s Irvinton Estate in Richmond’s Irvine-McDowell Park, 345 Lancaster Ave., is hosting “A Journey to Christmas Past” Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.

Among the vignettes portrayed will be children making period Christmas decorations, Victorian carolers, a Confederate officer writing home and the ever-popular “Grandma and Grandpa” talking about the Christmas celebrations of their childhoods.

Group tours will be every 20 to 30 minutes. Saturday’s program will begin at 6 p.m. with the last tour starting around 7:45. The program will start Sunday at 1 with the last tour beginning around 3:45.
