The third annual Holiday Open House is being held at the Bing Crosby House Museum noon-3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10, hosted by the Bing Crosby Advocates.

 The museum at 508 E. Sharp Avenue on the campus of Gonzaga University will be decorated for the holidays, and hot cider and cookies will be served by Bing Crosby Advocates. Admission is free to the public, with designated free parking directly behind the house.

 Built in 1911, this is where Bing grew up as a boy and where he lived until leaving for Hollywood in 1925. This is the very place where the singer of White Christmas spent 18 youthful Christmases.

More than 200 items are on display in the museum showing his life and career. Visitors can see his gold records, the Oscar he won for Going My Way, pipes, trophies, photographs and other items. For information contact Stephanie Plowman at (509) 313-3847 or plowman@gonzaga.edu.Open House at Bing:6.jpg
