Lefferts Homestead Winter Festival


St. Nicholas gives chocolate coins and oranges to children at the Dutch farmhouse in Prospect Park. Other activites include quilting, spinning, weaving, woodworking demonstrations from the 1880s, and toymaking, paper cutting and candlemaking workshops. Dutch treats made from Lefferts family recipes, such as olekeoks (doughnut holes) are part of the festivity. Sinterklaas has been celebrated here since the early 1990a.
