Join OKM Music as we welcome Christmas in the Ville with a festive shopping experience from 2 to 8 p.m. on Dec. 2, 2017 in downtown Bartlesville. The street in front of OKM will become an enchanting Christkindl Market as food and gift vendors dazzle us with their wares and music fills the air.
While shopping at the specialty gift booths, sip traditional holiday mulled wine, as well as apple cider, hot chocolate, beer and wine. Delicious food will be offered such as soups, hamburgers, hot dogs, sausages, schnitzel, chicken and noodles, pastries, cookies, pies, soft pretzels and cinnamon rolls.
Be sure to bring the kids to make sensory snowflake bottles and Christmas ornaments, play the snowman game, listen to story time with St. Nicholas, watch the puppeteer, get their faces painted and more! A family-gingerbread-house competition will award three lucky winners. (See below for instructions.)
The children will love the falling snow and the decorated Christmas tree.
Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children aged 7-20.
In addition to OKM’s Christkindl Market, the Bartlesville Regional Chamber of Commerce plans seasonal activities and shopping specials during the month-long Christmas in the Ville including an ice skating rink, live entertainment, Christmas movies, carriage rides, Santa photos, kids games and a live nativity.
Rules for Family Gingerbread House Competition
Everyone in the family can pitch in and help build and decorate a gingerbread house. To assemble the house, use Royal Icing because it dries hard. Then finish with frosting, M&Ms, Smarties, Peppermints, Red Hots, Skittles, etc.
Gingerbread kits are eligible but all parts should be edible, except the base.
All entries must be delivered in their completed form, attached to a sturdy base, no larger than 18” by 18”, to the OKM Music office, 415 S. Dewey Ave., in Bartlesville, by 3 p.m. Dec. 1.
Include your name and phone number in a visible place on the base board.
Houses must be picked up by 7 p.m. Dec. 2 in the Children’s Tent.
Three winners will be chosen by a panel of judges in three categories: Most Creative, Most Festive and Most Delicious Looking.
Cash prizes of $75 each will be awarded. Winning gingerbread houses will be designated with a ribbon. Prizes can be picked up at the OKM office, 415 S. Dewey, beginning Dec. 4.
