46th Annual Christmas at King Caesar: An Island Holiday

46th Annual Christmas at King Caesar: An Island Holiday

Décor for Christmas at King Caesar will be inspired by the travels of 19th century Duxbury mariners, who navigated local ships to islands around the world. Visitors, of all ages, will be encouraged to “Find Zeke,” the precocious, globe-trotting cat. The Ship’s store will feature a selection of items ideal for gift-giving. Event co-chairs: Joy Bannon, Sarah Macdonald, Christine Marohn, Liz Prudente, Maureen Leese, Jackie Ruggio, Deb Casagrande and Siobhan Roggenkamp.
