Eureka Springs always knows how to take a fun-filled holiday month and ratchet it up and put a slightly overactive spin to it and 2015 is no exception. December is a great month to shop and stay in Eureka Springs. Check out our gift to you our guests at the end of this post.
December 4th— Christmas Parade of Lights themed “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.” Eureka Springs loves a parade and especially one that hosts Santa Claus. There will be Christmas floats moving through the Historic District, lots of locals that love to get together and walk in the parade tossing candy to both young and old.. We even have a couple of bands that participate and a lot of fun-loving people. Yes, it might be a little hoakie but the enthusiasm of the locals and participants make up for it all. It sets the tone for the Christmas Season. Christmas lights and colorful led screen rental are turned on and the parade lights up Spring Street making it one of the year’s most popular parades. www.eurekaspringschamber.com
