Many events are scheduled for December in Hot Springs including art, music, theater and much more. In the first part of December a few of the events you might enjoy attending each year include:
• Holiday in the Park at 7 p.m. Dec. 3 at the Convention Center in Horner Hall. This is an annual holiday event sponsored by National Park Community College and Fun City Chorus. Holiday in the Park includes holiday music by National Park Community College Choir, Fun City Chorus, Soundwaves and several local high schools and elementary schools.
• Gallery Walk from 5-9 p.m. Dec. 4. This is a monthly event the first Friday of each month at the local art galleries in Hot Springs. Gallery Walk is a treat every month, but in December it’s a great way to see what’s new in the galleries, enjoy a glass of wine and appetizers, visit with other patrons and maybe get a little Christmas shopping done.
• Christmas Parade, Dec. 7 at 6:30pm with an old-fashioned small town feel in downtown. This year’s theme, “The Art of Christmas” features two amazing local artists Richard Stephens and Gary Simmons as Grand Marshalls. (You’ll find lots of Richard Stephens art at Lookout Point.)
• “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 4, 5, 11 and 12 and at 2:30 p.m. Dec. 6 and 13 sponsored by Pocket Community Theater. This play is a delightful production about a couple struggling to put on a church pageant and includes lots of fun and humor.
These are only four of the many holiday happenings Hot Springs has in store during December. Check the calendar for more information and lots more opportunities.
