    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!

    Parkville Nature Sanctuary is home to a large buck that only shows himself during the fall mating season. I saw him yesterday, as he ran across the trail right in front of me! I will try to get a photo of him this fall on one of my treks up the aptly-named "white tail trail." This time of year is ripe for seeing wildlife in the Sanctuary, as the foliage starts to die away. The changing colors are beautiful, too! If you happen to reside in Riss Lake, there is a Sanctuary entrance behind the Woodhaven Pool. Just park at the pool and head to the right of the playground equipment to the footpath. This leads directly onto the white tail trail.
