Fall into Autumn Fun in Fayetteville

Autumn is hands down the most colorful season. It's a time for apple cider, running through leaves and enjoying the cooler temperatures.

Holidays are getting closer and attentions are turning toward preparing for the coming winter.

Lights of the Ozarks

Downtown Square Lighting Parade - Friday, November 16, 6 pm

What happens when dedicated Park and Recreation workers spend 3,300 hours decorating The Downtown Square with over 400,000 light bulbs? Sheer Magic! On Friday, November 17th from 4 -6 pm join the community in an annual event that's been going on for over 20 years, the lighting of the lights! If you can't make the celebration, don't despair, you can visit the Lights of the Ozarks every night until December 31st. There are pony rides, hot chocolate, and holiday tunes. Time to get festive!

Talking With: Presented by the SmokeHouse Players - Thursday through Saturday, November 15 - 17, 7:30 - 9:30 pm

Join us at Ozark Mountain Smokehouse in the Chillin Room for Talking With... This evening will entertain you, make you laugh, and make you feel. Written in 1982 by Jane Martin, these eleven monologues lend insight into these women's lives, all very different, and still relevant today. There's a baton twirler, an actress who will do anything to get a job, an ex-rodeo star... Tickets are free and donations are accepted. If you attend on Thursday night all donations benefit Magdalene Serenity House and an anonymous donor will match every penny that comes in!

The Nutcracker - Walton Arts Center - November 23 - 25, 7 pm and 2 pm

Coming to Walton Center for one weekend only is the longtime classic "The Nutcracker." This production featuring The Winnipeg Orchestra, Canada's premiere ballet company and local children sounds like a magical performance not to be missed! Get your tickets soon!

When you live at The Academy at Frisco, a community designed specifically to cater to the lifestyle of students, you'll never be at a loss for something to do. Contact us today to set up a tour.
