Expect some holiday cheers at the Gillette Castle State Park. They’ve displayed authentic vintage Christmas postcards as well as yuletide lights and displays.

The decorated castle is open for self-paced tours on Saturdays and Sundays through Dec. 19. Each day’s final tour starts at 4 p.m. Tickets are required to enter the castle, and may be obtained in limited quantity on the grounds or in advance at reserveamerica.com.

The park is open to visitors and visitors may stroll about the grounds during regular hours, 8 a.m. until sunset daily. The external decorations are expected to remain in place through Jan. 2.

The park’s Visitors’ Center now is decorated with a life-sized Santa Claus figure loaned by Jezek.

Harold “Tyke” and Theodora “Teddie” Niver also are expected be on hand Sunday afternoons during the holiday season to greet and entertain visitors while portraying William and Helen Gillette.
