Hot Springs On The GO!

The Sentinel-Record - HER - Hot Springs - - News - Beth Bright As­so­ciate ed­i­tor

There's never a short­age of things to do and peo­ple to see dur­ing the hol­i­days. Once the hol­i­day lights are turned on in down­town Hot Springs, the sea­son of­fi­cially be­gins and won't stop un­til well after the new year.

This month, we've got your go-to guide for hol­i­day par­ties and en­ter­tain­ing, not only to get you ready for what's hap­pen­ing around town, but also to pre­pare for your next big event.

We're show­cas­ing a hol­i­day fa­vorite, Ice on Ice, an event where the “sig­na­ture drink” could land you a half-carat di­a­mond from Lau­ray's the Di­a­mond Cen­ter. Ice cubes in each drink will have a half-carat cu­bic zir­co­nium or one of four half-carat di­a­monds, and with only 400 tick­ets avail­able, this is an ex­clu­sive, don't-miss event of the sea­son that will ben­e­fit Project Hope Food Bank this year.

Known for its ginger­bread house each year, the Ar­ling­ton Re­sort Ho­tel & Spa is the spot for hol­i­day fes­tiv­i­ties and dé­cor. With so much his­tory in one lo­ca­tion, there are few bet­ter places to ex­pe­ri­ence Hot Springs' many hol­i­day tra­di­tions.

If you're the type who likes to stay in and host oth­ers dur­ing the hol­i­days, Michelle Mou­ton Har­ri­son of MHar­ri­son De­signs has com­piled her guide to plan­ning the per­fect, stress-free party. She's de­signed a clas­sic, “Nordic Hol­i­day” theme that can be eas­ily dressed up or down, and will surely please all who walk through the door.

Whether you en­joy walk­ing down­town on chilly evenings, arm in arm with your love in the glow of the twin­kling lights or stay­ing in by the fire, co­zied up with fam­ily or friends, the hol­i­day sea­son is more than just beau­ti­ful dec­o­ra­tions and won­der­ful food — it's about to­geth­er­ness and grat­i­tude. As we head into the hol­i­days, I wish you all the best the sea­son has to of­fer.
