We’re having a beautiful snowy day here today. Makes the driving a bit tricky, but it sure is pretty! We’re under a Winter Storm Warning until 4pm, according to the National Weather Service, and it looks like we’ve got a cold weekend ahead of us. Benton County reports that they’re working to clear the roads, and you can check the county’s ice and snow removal plan here.
We’ve had one event cancellation already, so you may want to call ahead and make sure a given event is still happening before you head out this evening. And speaking of events, here’s what’s planned for the weekend:
We’ve got the Holiday Marketplace happening at OSU, as well as the CMLC’s International Holiday Craft Bazaar. Music A La Carte features the University Chorale and the Corvallis Community Choir today. Winter’s Eve Corvallis happens tonight, too! Assistance League Corvallis, organizers of Winter’s Eve Corvallis, said on Wednesday that the event will happen regardless of the weather. Watch their Facebook page or website for updates.
Saturday is the Holiday Marketplace‘s and the International Holiday Craft Bazaar‘s second day, and Garland Nursery is hosting their annual Ladies’ Day Out. The Friends of the Library Holiday Book Sale starts at 10am, and the Beavers take on Arkansas-Pine Bluff at noon. The Heart of the Valley Children’s Choir performs their Holiday Concert at 1:30pm and again at 4pm, and Terra Madre Day begins at 3pm.
Garland Nursery is hosting two holiday craft workshops, “Make Your Own Holiday Centerpiece” and “Make Your Own Wreath.” The Spirit of Christmas Bazaar and Festival opens at 10:30am, and the HOURS Traders Winter Celebration opens at 11am. The Majestic has a matinee performance of The King of Spain’s Daughter, and the Corvallis-OSU Symphony Holiday Concert begins at 3pm!
Don’t forget to check the Darkside Cinema movie listings or stop in to the Teal Gallery, and head out this weekend to see the Pastega Christmas Display at the fairgrounds. Take a peak at our community calendar, art show calendar, nightlife calendar and wine, spirits and craft beer tastings calendar, too!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
