Krampus is Coming to Town


Sunday December 19, 2021
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us at the haunted Bolton Mansion on December 19th from 6:00-9:00 for an evening with Santa’s less-jolly sidekick…The Krampus!

Have you been bad this year? This is your chance to sit on Ol’ Krampy’s lap and tell him why you should be on Santa’s nice list, and not on The Krampus’s naughty list…because you know what that means!
There will also be various Krampus and Creepy Christmas items available for purchase, including personalized ornaments to hang on your tree!

The setting will be the eerie and seriously haunted Bolton Mansion, located at 85 Holly Drive in Levittown. If you’ve been there after dark, you already know what you’re in for. There might even be a surprise guest or two. What could be better?

There will be a professional photographer on site, with various and affordable picture packages for you to choose from. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the folks at The Bolton Mansion, to help with their continual upkeep and protect this local treasure.

Notes from the mansion:
The line to see Krampus will be outside, with social distancing. Please dress accordingly and bring a facemask. Only two groups at a time will be inside of the house. While inside, masks must be worn. You will be able to remove your masks while pictures are being taken. This will be a safe and fun event, suitable for all ages (that can handle a creepy monster, that is.)
