The winds of summer have blown their colors over the countryside and now we await the awesome time of year, when we get to relax a bit, enjoy family with fires in the fireplaces, hot chocolate and hot cider. This is the time of year when we pause for a moment to reflect on the goodness that has befallen our lives over the last 12 months. AND to anticipate, get excited and wait, wait, for CHRISTMAS. The shops in Eureka Springs will all be running especially wonderful sales, while there are so many activities to amaze, entertain,and enthuse.
On Nov 7, 8 , 9, and 10 we call forth Food and Wine Weekend. Most fine dining restaurants prepare a special meal with a coordinated wine that many of us can enjoy.
On Nov 9 you may want to take part in the Saturday gallery stroll in downtown art galleries. Many of the galleries have the artist displaying their works along with hors doeurves and – of course – wine.
Nov 16 and 17 we have the Fall Antique Show. This is an especially exciting display of hand-made items from the finest collection you can imagine, from aprons to bird houses, and cabinets. Come see the local talent that we have right here in our very own town. The show is at the Best Western Inn of the Ozarks in the converntion center and runs through Sunday also.
We would like to invite you (in case you haven’t heard our amazing community chorus) to a lovely evening of beautiful music. In November the concert is on Nov 16 at the Holiday Island Ballroom, 4:00 pm; December 12 at the Crescent Hotel at 6:30 pm, and the grand concert of them all is on December 14 in the Auditorium at 7:30. The music is unbelievable and the grand finale will be the chorus, plus choirs from many churches, school choirs and bands, and anyone in the audience who wants to sing. If everyone takes part, we will have over 1000 voices joining in the Hallelujah Chorus. This will be a moving event for all. Tickets available from any chorus member, or you may call Judie Lockhart at 888-624-6787.
We have quite a few restaurants in Eureka Springs that will be open Thanksgiving Day and offer a special feast, so don’t let that stop you from visiting.
Don’t forget the Christmas Sweet Treats Cookie Tour coming up on Dec 14, presented by the Bed and Breakfast Inns of Eureka Springs. Come enjoy fellowship, beautiful decorations and of course, SWEET TREATS. You get two samples at each of the nine different Victorian Bed and Breakfasts and the recipes. You’ll enjoy tours of each B&B, all decorated up for the holidays in their finest.
If you want to make the most of your time in Eureka Springs, take a carriage ride. You can actually look at all the glorious decorations and leave the driving to Michael, Hank, Blondie and Seymour. (Seymour will be debuting in the spring).
Make your time extra special in Eureka Springs. Come see us for the holidays.
A early Merry Christmas to all!
