    I am so excited about the fact that the biking/walking trail on the south side of Highway 45 was extended all the way to I-435 when they widened the road this winter. This allows you to bike all the way from I- 435 to the Line Creek Trail without ever getting on the road! According to the Platte County Parks & Recreation website, the length of this trail is roughly 6.5 miles, all of it paved and smooth. I use it regularly to bike between my home in Riss Lake to my farm near Thousand Oaks. I can be on the trail for 90% of this ride, which makes me feel so much safer. If you are looking for a new route to add to your repertoire, try this one out.

    Lots of people are aware of Parkville's annual Christmas on the River celebration, with its 1000-voice choir, strolling carollers and fantastic fireworks display. Most people, however, don't know how Main Street Parkville Association (MSPA) pays for this wonderful, free event. Every year, there are corporate underwriters and other donors, but there is also a community fundraiser that happens one week before the main event. It is called the "Gallery of Trees." Local individuals and businesses put together fully-decorated, themed Christmas trees for a silent auction. There are always some great trees and wreaths on which to bid. This year, the event will take place at the Bank Liberty building, 12 E 1st St., downtown Parkville. Ticket prices are $50 each and include a cocktail reception, silent and live auctions, and food provided by Parkville restaurants. The event is Thursday, November 30 at 6:30 p.m.

    Throughout each year, many festivals and celebrations take place in Parkville, and one of my favorites is Christmas on the River! Since moving to Riss Lake in 1993, my family and I have attended countless Christmas on the River celebrations to help kick-off the December Holiday Season, and will again in 2017! Memories include each of our children participating in the Park Hill School District’s 1000-Voice Choir, singing Christmas carols as part of Santa Claus’s arrival in Parkville (many years ago!), enjoying hot chocolate as we walked through downtown Parkville and English Landing Park, sharing holiday greetings with many neighbors and friends, and capping off the evenings with spectacular Fireworks Shows over the Missouri River!

    Christmas on the River 2017 is Friday, December 1, from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The link below provides details for all of the fun things to do and see, so you can plan your evening in festive downtown Parkville! Admission is free!
