Christmas Open House and Ugly Sweaters
Joe Denoyer - December 1, 2020 1:24 pm
There’s no other night like it- the lights, Santa’s arrival by Apollo aircraft, merchants all open. The Great Christmas Open House is back in Guymon.
Jim Quimby, Chairman Artist Incubation states: “A night unlike any other. Guymon is transformed into a festive community filled with joy, community and celebration. From Santa flying in, to all the merchants making festive- it’s one night Sherry and I would never want to miss!”
From the beginning, Christmas Open House was created to raise spirits, hope, joy and the meaning of Christmas. It’s done with “enhanced retail shopping”. To bring people together with festive activities that make a small town “show off”. Today it remains just that. A night like no other.
Returning this year: Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest. $500 is up for grabs. Contestants should “check in” at All Fired Up Gallery, 421 N. Main and leave their number. Secret judges will announce the winner at 8:30.
Live music by Kevin Wale of BiPolar Echo, Santa’s Secret Elves, Santa Fe Carriage rides and activities for the kids by the YMCA. A night like no other coming this Friday, December 4th from 6 to 9 pm in downtown Guymon. Adults 18 and over will be taxied around town, and kids can enjoy activities after Santa’s arrival at the Methodist Church.
There’s a live demonstration on the pottery wheel by Samuel Ortiz, OPSU graduate. The event and all things “festive” are free to the public and starts at 6 pm Friday December 4th at All Fired Up Gallery in Guymon. The event is sponsored in part by the Oklahoma Arts Council, National Endowment for the Arts and supported by the City of Guymon, Bank of the Panhandle and Seaboard Foods.
