Hot Springs On The GO!

The Sentinel-Record - HER - Hot Springs - - In The Issue - Beth Bright As­so­ciate ed­i­tor

The hol­i­days are a time for fam­i­lies to get to­gether, rem­i­nisce about the past year and look for­ward to mem­o­ries not yet made. But this time of year also marks that spe­cial time where friends act as fam­ily and min­gle to­gether in good spir­its.

This is­sue is all about not only the hol­i­day soirees our com­mu­nity is known for, but ways you can make your hol­i­day fes­tiv­i­ties more spe­cial.

Taste of the Hol­i­days, now in its 16th year treats guests to a night at Mid-Amer­ica Science Mu­seum with sam­plings of Hot Springs' finest eater­ies while in­cor­po­rat­ing science ex­per­i­ments with a hol­i­day twist. This is the mu­seum's big­gest fundraiser and it is one you surely don't want to miss.

For those look­ing for a more re­laxed at­mos­phere, the Down­town Chili Cook-off in the Ex­change Street Park­ing Plaza will give pa­trons the chance to taste dozens of chilis pre­pared by teams through­out the com­mu­nity. The an­nual event has grown through­out the years to build the city's Christ­mas light dis­play, making for a beau­ti­ful back­drop for all of Hot Springs' hol­i­day fes­tiv­i­ties.

Lovers of the fine arts may look no fur­ther than the Muses Cre­ative Artistry Project's an­nual “Voices of An­gels” hol­i­day con­certs. With per­for­mances at the Muses Cul­tural Arts Cen­ter and Gar­van Wood­land Gar­dens' An­thony Chapel, the sounds of hol­i­day clas­sics through the ages will get ev­ery­one in the hol­i­day spirit.

The hol­i­days will be a lit­tle dif­fer­ent for me this year with new fam­ily tra­di­tions be­ing learned, adapted and made. But with ex­cit­ing new chap­ters come more love and mem­o­ries, and I hope you'll join me in wish­ing all those around us the best the sea­son has to of­fer.
