Holiday fun has returned in 2021, and I think we all need to live it up to the fullest!


Christmas of 2020 was a bummer holiday for many people. Sure we found new ways to make last Christmas special, but we couldn't celebrate with all of our loved ones like we are used to doing, and many of our favorite annual traditions and events were either canceled or operated on a much smaller scale. For Christmas 2021 we may still need to wear masks and actively practice social distancing, but the good news is, we can all get out there and have some fun with the whole, crazy family!

If your family is on a mission to make up for everything you may have missed out on last Christmas, (my family certainly is), here are some small town, but big fun, holiday events you should definitely check out this year. (If we've missed one going on in your town, please send us a message on the Q98.5 app with all the info, and we'll be sure to add it to this list!)
