Here at Pond Mountain Lodge, quietly nestled in the Arkansas Ozarks, we love the Holiday seasons. Thanksgiving Eureka Springs opens with the Antique Festival of the Ozarks, November 17 – 19, a fun 3-day event at the Convention Center. What’s your favorite antique? Primitives, pottery, furniture, glass, toys or jewelry — it’s all here! Early bird wine & cheese preview on Friday 17th from 5 – 8.
Did you know a wild turkey runs 25 m.p.h.? Prep for your afternoon of eating by limbering up at Lake Leatherwood City Park for the Don Gammie Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day. 8:30 a.m. signup at the soccer fields for Adult or Children’s 5K run or 1-mile walk. $20 for signup; all proceeds go to the Grassy Knob Volunteer Fire Department.
Not in the mood to cook on Thanksgiving Day? Guess what, you don’t have to! Plenty of Eureka’s restaurants are open & ready to make you part of their family. Thanksgiving buffets at the Crescent’s Crystal Dining Room or Myrtie Mae’s in the Convention Center are an annual tradition. Fine restaurants like Grand Taverne, Rogue’s Manor, Le Stick Nouveau and family restaurants such as The Pied Piper and Forest Hill are open as well. Reserve your spot early.
Our downtown merchants are ready for Black Friday. Shops like Nelson Leather have substantial discounts. Do your Christmas shopping early & then spend that extra Xmas cash on fun gifts for YOU!
Speaking of Christmas, Eureka Springs is already decorated for the holidays & the lights at night are a joy to behold. Stay tuned for more Christmas news. Visits with Santa Claus in Basin Park coming soon.
