Celebrate the Season with These Cooperstown Holiday Events

The holidays are here, which means it’s time for fun with family and friends. Add these Cooperstown holiday events to your calendar and get the most out of this joyful season.

Wassailing Weekend

You probably know the Christmas song, “Here We Come a Wassailing,” but do you know what “wassailing” is? Every weekend through Dec. 22, you can head to the Fly Creek Cider Mill in Fly Creek and learn how to make Wassail, the traditional holiday drink. You can also browse the gift shop to find unique presents.

Santa Express Train Ride

The Cooperstown & Charlotte Valley Railroad will have a variety of holiday-themed train rides every weekend starting Nov. 29. If you have young kids, they will love riding on a train and getting to meet Santa at the same time. Tickets cost $18 for children and $21 for adults. Buy your tickets early before they sell out.

Candlelight Evening

The Farmers’ Museum is a local treasure here in Cooperstown. Every year, it hosts a Candlelight Evening to celebrate Christmas. There will be magical candle luminaries, horse-drawn carriage rides, visits from Saint Nicholas, holiday music, warm wassail, and delicious food.

Here at Kevin’s Royal Auto in Cooperstown, we wish you a happy holiday season and a great time visiting these local celebrations.

Ram 1500 Celebrates Unprecedented IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Rating

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has awarded the 2020 Ram 1500 Crew Cab and some 2019 Ram 1500 Crew Cab models with the coveted IIHS Top Safety Pick+ designation. The Ram 1500 is the first ever full-size pickup truck to be named a Top Safety Pick+.

Top Safety Pick+ is the highest rating on the IIHS scale and was introduced a few years ago to account for the growing use of driver assistance technology in the auto industry.

To earn the Top Safety Pick+ rating, a vehicle must achieve top scores in all six IIHS crash tests, a high rating for its front crash prevention technology, and a good headlight rating.

Ram attributes the Ram 1500’s impressive crash test performance partly to its splayed front frame-rails, which are designed to distribute energy better in some types of collisions to reduce the damage to passengers.

In addition to its perfect crashworthiness ratings, the Ram 1500 also earned a Superior rating on its Automatic Emergency Braking technology. Using a combination of cameras and radar to detect a potential collision, the system warns the driver when the Ram 1500 is approaching another vehicle, then engages the brakes if the driver doesn’t respond in time.

Stop in at Kevin’s Royal Auto to test-drive the 2020 Ram 1500 and learn more about its outstanding safety features.
