After enjoying success with hosting a drive-thru on Halloween with a Halloween-themed barn at her Sheridan property, Westfield High School graduate Andrea Carey now has plans for a Christmas-themed barn.
“We were thinking for the Christmas barn that we wanted to do a drive-thru again, but we were worried since for the Halloween barn, the yard got super muddy and we had a person get stuck,” Carey said. “And obviously, there could be snow or ice, so we decided to do something inside the barn, and it won’t be a drive-thru.”
Carey began planning events at the barn, called Our Barn, at 2060 W. 291st St., in Sheridan, after she and her husband Spencer were married there. The first event was the Halloween drive-thru.
There will be four different events leading up to Christmas, including Mrs. Claus reading a story to children; a visit from Santa; a Christmas movie night; and Silly Safari visiting with a reindeer. The events begin Dec. 12 and end Dec. 23.
“On Monday Dec. 21, Silly Safari is coming with a reindeer, so Santa’s elf will bring a reindeer and the kids can come through and pet the reindeer and get a present that Santa left,” Carey said. “It’s one we are super excited about.”
The events are presented on different evenings and each have different costs. COVID-19 precautions include only allowing 50 people in the barn at once, spacing tables out for social distancing and pre-registration for tickets.
