WHEELING — Oglebay Institute invites area residents to participate in festive community carol singing from 6-8 p.m. Friday outside the Mansion Museum in Oglebay Resort.

The aim of the event is to promote good community relations, provide an evening of family entertainment and spread some old-fashioned holiday cheer. It’s free and open to the public, and guests of all ages are welcome to participate.

Carolers will gather on the front porch of the lavishly decorated Mansion Museum and sing a lively mix of traditional holiday tunes as well as some modern day favorites. Hot chocolate and cookies will be served, and guests can stay warm around a fire burning inside an ice chimney on the front lawn.

The Mansion’s period rooms are now lavishly decorated for the annual “Holidays at the Mansion” exhibit, which is sponsored by Panhandle Cleaning and Restoration.

The Mansion Museum is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m Fridays and Saturdays. The Mansion Museum will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Guests should arrive at least 30 minutes prior to closing to allow time to tour.
