“Christmas in the Mountains” will be celebrated in Butte Falls on Saturday, Nov. 21 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Every business and all the groups are involved in this holiday celebration.
The town will be decorated from the time you cross the cattle guard at one end of town until you depart at the other end. You might want to start the day with Krispy Kreme donuts on sale by the Butte Falls High School Speech and Debate Team. And be sure to pick up a map at any business to show you all the activities going on. Highlights include:
Over 100 nativity scenes collected from around the world by Don and Mary Pedrick They will be on display at the Community Bible Church.
Save room for lunch at the Sugar Pine Company Café where the special is a Cory Burger, or at the Butte Falls Tavern where chili and cornbread is the feature.
The Landing will surely be a popular place. They will have two raffles. One is for a $1,000 gift card to Wal-Mart. Tickets are just $10 and they are only selling 250. Pretty good odds. As of last week there were a lot of tickets left. They are available at The Landing. They will also have a raffle for a Victorian Christmas tree. They are available at The Landing.
Lady Lioness annual “Christmas in the Country” Bazaar with lunch and silent auction is at the Community Hall, by the park.
David Irwin Wildlife Photography is featured at the Sugar Pine Company Café while JoAnn’s Boutique will have her own special Christmas room and free coffee and cookies.
Both museums will be open and there will be some “Kodak moments” at “The Falls” with St. Nick or on the Butte Falls fire truck. Great idea for this year’s Christmas cards.
With the purchase of $10 of gas, customers will get a ticket for the “Dark Night” basket at the Butte Falls Service Station.
Redneck crafts, natural health products and candy cane espressos will be available at the Whistle Stop while prime rib and homemade pies will be the order of the day at the Butte Falls Café.
Yes, everyone has gotten into the act and they are hoping for a big crowd to enjoy a grand time in a community that knows how to pull together even when the times are tough. Make it a point to visit Butte Falls Saturday, Nov. 21 and get a head start on the holiday.
