Christmas 2008 Kickoff- BA style

Last night BA kicked off its Main Street Merchants Christmas along w/ the unveiling of the Century Clock. The weather was perfect at 59 degrees. The Merchants had their shops decorated for Christmas and were passing out goodies to eat, prizes to win, and trying to boost the economy. There was also horse drawn carriage rides and the trolley was running. This also kicks off the "Buy Broken Arrow" ticket program. On December 22 a drawing will be held to win $2,000. $3,000, & $10,000. For every dollar spent in Broken Arrow at participating merchants you get a ticket. Who knows, maybe someone I know will win this year.

This is is the first time I have ever participated in this event. My friend Carrie's daughter Jamie
participated in the live stage performances. Jamie is 11 and dances for Moore's Dance Studio (this is the studio that put BA on the map when they performed clogging on "Star Search") Jamie is AWESOME! Her troop has performed in Branson and hopes to go on the Carnival Cruise Line next year. (I am so going as a sponsor, she does not need to be on the open waters without me!) Kaybrie & Justin (Jamie's little brother) danced w/ the performers. I'm thinking Kaybrie may be a natural.....

Broken Arrow was also paid a visit w/ a special visitor from the North Pole. Needless to say Kaybrie and Justin like to look at Santa, but no touch or smile will be had this year from them, but Christmas is still 8 weeks away!
