A Dr Pepper Christmas

January 19, 2011

On Saturday, December 11, 2010, the Dr Pepper Museum celebrated its 4th Annual A Dr Pepper Christmas.  With nearly 300 people in attendance, the floors rang with the laughter and cheer of the holiday season.  Musical entertainment of those familiar holiday carols was provided by China Spring Middle School’s 8th grade band, directed by Michael Loudermilk, and Vocal Choir from St. Paul’s Episcopal Day School, directed by Claudette Basden. In between musical sets, visitors were able to create their own soft drink using a variety of holiday flavors such as cinnamon, apple, vanilla, chocolate, peppermint, and even egg nog.  Visitors leisurely toured the Museum feasting on a variety of different foods placed throughout the floors.  Visitors finished off the evening on the 3rd floor by visiting a Sundae Bar and watching a video montage featuring a variety of holiday themed Dr Pepper and 7UP artifacts from the museum’s collection.  What better way was there to join in the holiday spirit?

The Dr Pepper Museum was also a drop off spot for Toys For Tots this past holiday season.  Visitors that brought a new, unwrapped toy to donate to Toys For Tots that evening received a free pass to visit the Museum again at no cost.  Thank you to everyone who helped make the holiday season a little brighter for children in our area!

Thanks to all of our board members and volunteers who came out and helped make the evening a success!  We appreciate all of your hard work!
