Frugal Friday: November 30
Christmas has come early. Even the Grinch would smile at all the festive, free family fun going on this weekend.
If you’re in the mood for a cowboy Christmas, head to Stockyards City Saturday morning for their Christmas parade.
Watch longhorns, rodeo cowboys, antique cars and native dancers stroll down the main drag starting at 10 a.m.
After the parade, St. Nick might even stop by for a few pictures with the kids and don’t miss the Rodeo Oprey for some holiday fun.
If you’re looking for a more traditional way to get into the holiday season, check out a Territorial Christmas in Guthrie.
Saturday kick off the events at the lighted Christmas parade at dusk.
Then stroll through this historic downtown to see “living postcards,” or the holiday animated window displays.
The events continue over the next few weeks with a free chorus performance, Victorian home walks, candlelight trolley tours and theater performances.
The weather around here lately hasn’t really been in the Christmas spirit but Winter on Western is a sure way to get your fill of holiday cheer.
Next Thursday, Dec. 6, Chesapeake Energy is back with a whole sleigh full of festive family fun from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
The children’s snow hills will be a hit with the little ones, along with photos with Santa, the holiday lights, free giveaways and Ashton Edwards will be there too collecting coats for her dad, Brad Edwards’ Warmth 4 Winter program.
If you donate a coat you’ll get a 20-percent off pass for participating shops on Western and Classen Curve.
In the mood for something sweet? Take the family to the 22nd Annual Minco Honey Festival Saturday.
Along with all the delicious local honey you can imagine, see over 90 crafters, a quilt show, honey plant tours and a kids tractor pull.
Be sure to say hello to Freedom 43 TV’s Lucas Ross and family at the Gibson-Ross Clover Bloom Honey farm while you’re there.
It’s free from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
