OC Weekend Events: Christmas parade, concerts, shopping and more

(Contributed)

CASPER, Wyo. — Thanksgiving is over but events keep rolling into Casper as the Christmas season “heats” up.

While there are plenty of things happening Friday, Saturday in particular has a packed schedule.

A Community Christmas Tree Lighting event will take place starting at 6 pm Saturday at David Street Station. People can also take a break from shopping and skate around the outdoor rink.

Following that lighting, the downtown Christmas Parade starts at 6:45 pm. This year’s theme is “Candy Coated Christmas.”

People looking for something indoors might consider some of the many concerts set for the weekend. Those include Zack Schommer, who will be performing from 6-9 pm Saturday at Frontier Brewing Company and Taproom.

Another Saturday option is a “Gnome Santa” event set for 6 pm Saturday at Artisan Alley. The cost is $35 per seat.

Don’t forget the Oil City News Local Holiday Gift Guide if you’re getting started with your Christmas shopping and need some inspiration.
