|Although temperatures are dropping, Har-Ber Village Museum will host the last weekend of Christmas on Main Street [in Grove, Oklahoma] on Saturday, Dec. 21 and Sunday, Dec. 22, 2013, from 2-8 p.m. Area businesses and organizations have decorated 14 buildings along Main Street for the holidays. Attendees can visit the Main Street area free of admission but should use their coins and currency to vote for their favorites. Prizes will be awarded to first, second and third place decorations.
“We have provided two fire pits so our guests can warm up as they tour Main Street,” said Director Amelia Chamberlain. “They can also step into the heated craft room to decorate ornaments to hang on the Har-Ber Village Christmas tree or warm up with some hot chocolate and refreshments, which will be sold by Ikon Dance and Cheer. It will be chilly, but we have worked hard to warm your hearts with this wonderful event.”
Jeannie Wheatley with The Weaver’s Shop at Har-Ber Village will show participants how to create a mini mug rug at the top and bottom of every hour. Cost to participate is $14; anyone interested may call (918) 787-1905 to reserve a time. Drop-ins may weave a mug rug.
Another way to stay warm while having fun is by taking part in the gingerbread house workshop, which will be held Saturday, Dec. 21 and Sunday, Dec. 22 at 2:30 p.m. All the materials will be provided for participants, who can build and then decorate small gingerbread houses on a wooden platform to take home. Cost is $17 for non-members and $12 for members. Houses can be decorated by individuals or by a small group, but no more than two or three people decorating a house is suggested. Registration forms are due Wednesday, Dec. 18. For more information phone (918) 786-6446.
