Mountain Harbor lights up the holidays next weekend

Mountain Harbor Resort and Spa will be the place to be next weekend with a full slate of events scheduled including their annual Christmas lighting ceremony and Joplin VFD fundraiser.

Thanksgiving Day can be one of the craziest days of the year with families gathering for the holiday. Mountain Harbor offers a host of holiday packages to help ease the stress of gathering for the holidays. They will also be serving a traditional Thanksgiving dinner at the lodge restaurant Thursday.

Friday the resort will host one of the most popular holiday events of the area as they officially kick off Christmas at Harbor with their funa and festive lighting ceremony.

Festivities begin at 6 p.m. Friday and will include live music, free cookies and hot cocoa and cider for all.

Visitors can enjoy the lights by way of free hayrides around Harbor throughout the evening. Mrs. Claus will entertain everyone by reading Christmas stories and the evening will also feature the arrival of Old Saint Nick himself.

The entire evening Friday night is free of charge and the night won’t end until the last hayride is over.

Saturday, November 30, features one of the most anticipated fundraisers of the year as the Joplin Volunteer Fire Department presents their annual Spaghetti Supper and Fundraiser.

Volunteer firemen serve up pots of homemade spaghetti sauces with pasta, salad and garlic bread provided by the crew from the Lodge Restaurant.

The event will also feature silent and live auctions. They will also raffle a 65 inch flat screen TV.

The event begins at 5:30 p.m. Saturday and will wrap up around 8:30 p.m.
