The Jingle Bell Tour is BACK for the ninth season! Mainspring of Ephrata cordially invites you to this special community event.
Spend a few moments in quiet reflection with seasonal readings and holiday music in the historic Saal. Two programs are offered each night, one starting at 6:30 p.m. and the other at 8:00 p.m.
Enjoy a holiday favorite in our historic downtown Ephrata theatre! Today’s showing is How the Grinch Stole Christmas featuring Jim Carey and the 1947 classic It Happened On Fifth Avenue.
These special tours don’t tell the full Ephrata story but take you back in time to visit with a special story. Each year offers a new story with a cast of junior and senior high school students playing the roles that bring history to life. The one hour tours start every half-hour each night and reservations are required and can be made by calling the Visitor Center at 717-733-6600 beginning December 1. Admission charged.
