Bringing in the Holiday Cheer

24 Nov

Its the eve of Thanksgiving and all through the house anticipation grows for the feast that will come with the following day, but for some the anticipation is for the notorious black Friday sales on November 25th. As much fun as it sounds to spend money I don’t have I sadly will not be waking up at the crack of dawn this year to shop but rather be heading to work to serve all the shoppers their morning coffee.  For those of you out there who are not black Friday shoppers, there is another way for you to kick off the holiday season, Eugene’s very own 5th Street Public Market is having their own annual event Night of a Thousand Stars gala.

The event kicks off at 5 p.m.on Friday, November 25th and is a fun way to welcome the holidays with music, dancing and holiday cheer! The star studded evening includes a full schedule of local performers and artists, including a special performance from the Eugene Opera. The event is family friendly and will include the opportunity to get photos and visit with Santa; donations are welcome to benefit the gala’s partner and local adoption agency, A Family for Every Child.

5th Street Public Market is a great place to see the best of Eugene, and have the opportunity to interact with local businesses an talent. The atmosphere is always fun and with so many different shops and restaurants there is always something new to see and try. So if your not feeling like shopping all day or getting out and about after a day full of eating you should head down to 5th street and welcome in the holidays!
