In case you missed me this morning on the 2NEWS Midday Show giving the rundown of things to do with your kids in Tulsa this week, here are a few things to tuck into your calendar.
Tonight (Dec. 9):
Tulsa Youth Symphony. The TYS and guests ORU Orchestra and Chorus will play a holiday concert tonight at Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center, 701 S. Main in BA. Tickets are $10 for adults, $6 for kids. 7:30pm.
Julie Powell at Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. Moms, if you have the night off, get to the CFBEO to meet the author of Julie and Julia and of the new book, Cleaving. 7pm.
Tuesday (Dec. 8):
Bikes, Balls and You. Funny name, great times. Load up the kids and head to Whiteside Community Center just west of Promenade Mall off of 41st Street for some games, activities and free snacks with the parents and kids of Ttownmoms.com. 9:30am.
Wednesday (Dec. 9):
Arvest Winterfest. Lace up those skates, Mom and Dad, because to keep up with the kids on the outdoor skating rink at this downtown festival, you're gonna have to. Get your fill of concessions, carriage rides and a 44-foot, 35,000-light Christmas tree, too. 4-10pm.
Thursday (Dec. 10):
A Christmas Carol. It's opening night for this Tulsa Performing Arts Center production of the Charles Dickens Classic. Tickets are $24. The curtain goes up at 7:30pm.
Friday (Dec. 11):
The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge. After watching classic version of this Christmas classic the night before, challenge your expectations at Sapulpa Community Theater. Why? Because Scrooge is back to his old ways and has hauled the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future into court. Oh, my. The performance starts at 8pm.
Saturday (Dec. 12):
Jungle Bell Run. Get up (and dress up) bright and early for this musical, fundraising 5K on Brookside for arthritis. 8am.
PSO Parade of Lights. If you're not downtown somewhere along Cincinnati Avenue, Fourth Street or Boulder Avenue come 6pm this Saturday night, you'll be square. Dozens of parade entries from giant, helium-filled balloons to marching bands and, of course, floats decked to the holiday nines glide through the streets of downtown Tulsa. The parade is expected to attract 30,000 onlookers, but don't worry about parking - 35,000 people drive and park downtown for work every day with plenty of parking to spare.
