BARSTOW — If you are looking for that nostalgic moment on Main Street to get into the Christmas spirit, historian Steve Smith has just what you are looking for.

Smith is offering his last mural tour of the year Saturday and he says it's special.

"Our Christmas special tour  is on horse and buggy, a surrey tour with Christmas carolers, dancers, Santa Claus, senior elves and refreshments," Smith said.

The 9 a.m. tour begins at the Treasure House Mall at 300 E. Main St. with a presentation and slide show by Smith entitled "A Walk Back in Time Along Route 66 Barstow." The horse and surrey ride will follow to view the gallery of historic murals along Old Town Route 66 with the Big Horse Carriage Company.

One seat costs $15 with a bench (three adults or two adults and two children) for $40. Multiple tours will be held throughout the day. Bookings must be made in advance by calling 760-252-6060 or 760-220-4351.
