Community Calendar Dec. 7-13, 2017

Gather the entire family and join the fun and entertainment on Dec.7.  Be a part of the excitement of the Third Annual Parade of Lights canned food drive; all entries need to be lighted.

Thursday evening get your spot early along the parade route as traffic will be diverted off of the boulevard from Woodbury to Sandhill at 5 p.m. Bring your lawn chairs and some refreshments to help you stay warm and enjoy the parade.

The parade will head east on Mesquite Blvd on the south side lanes (City Hall side) of the street. Please remember to bring your cans of food to donate to the Salvation Army. The parade committee is asking that each attendant bring two cans of food for the Boy Scouts to collect along the parade route..

After the Parade of Lights you can gather around City Hall and help celebrate the season as Santa and Mrs. Clause provide a photo opportunity for the children along with cookies and hot cocoa. Cookies and cocoa are courtesy of the Eureka Casino.

Don’t forget to stop by the Mesquite Fine Arts Center for the Virgin Valley Artists Christmas Boutique where you can find that one of a kind gift. The gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

The Mesquite Toes have been working hard for months rehearsing for the Toes’ Annual Christmas Benefit Concert; all proceeds go to local charities.

Advance tickets are on sale at Ready Golf & Gear, Mesquite Chamber of Commerce and Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery or at the Mesquite Community Theatre Box Office one hour before show time. General admission tickets are $10, students $5.

The Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue Scenic AZ. Satellite Adoption Center is holding a Christmas with the Donkeys open house for the public on Dec. 9 from noon to 3 p.m. (Arizona time).

Pictures with Santa and the donkeys will be available as well as refreshments and a 50-50 raffle.

Directions to ‘Christmas with the Donkeys’ from Mesquite: go east on Hillside (past Smiths grocery) about 4 miles.
