Duncan’s Small Town Christmas this Saturday is everything its name suggests.
On Saturday, Dec. 10, the town of Duncan will roll out its annual “Small Town Christmas” with family fun throughout the afternoon and evening. The town welcomes visitors to come on over and join in traditional small-town celebrations.
Beginning at noon, holiday festivities will fill Centennial Park on U.S. Highway 70. There will be free games for children along with food and craft booths until 4 p.m. Revelers are then encouraged to visit local stores and get a bite to eat at one of Duncan’s four restaurants. But don’t dally because a little before 6 p.m. the sidewalks get packed with bundled-up spectators for the light parade. Bring warm clothes and camp chairs if you have them.
Throughout the day, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., the Duncan Woman’s Club will be selling a wide variety of hot soups to eat in or take out. Varieties include broccoli cheese, green enchilada, chicken tortilla, menudo, beef soup and more. Their multi-room “Christmas House” is filled with gifts for purchase made by local artists and crafters. The items are all originals and include an assortment from full-sized quilts and handmade greeting cards to Christmas lapel pins and warm, knitted caps, which come in handy for watching the light parade.
Don’t miss the room behind the greeting area, featuring locally made candies and other goodies.
The Duncan Woman’s Club is on U.S. Highway 70 at the corner of High Street, just one long block past Centennial Park.
The town of Duncan extends a warm welcome to friends from all across the area. I hope to see you here Saturday.
