Museum glassmakers will prepare a holiday feast out of glass on the Hot Glass Show stage, while in the Museum the local Finger Lakes Culinary Bounty organization provides samples of holiday cookies made from local ingredients. Finger Lakes Distilling will offer tastings of their high-quality spirits handmade from locally grown fruits and grains.
Live music is provided by Ithaca-based Sim Redmond Band, which features a roots rock sound tinged with reggae-style beats.
