Things To Do in Mesa, Arizona This First Week of December

Here is our weekly round up of fun events going on right here in Mesa.  Enjoy!

- FREE Bahama Bucks.  Yep, this is first on the list because I just might be first in line on Tuesday, December 6th to get my free small shaved ice.  The workers at the Bahama Bucks on Power, south of Baseline are gearing up for a big turnout.  (You don't have to be first in line, EVERYONE gets a free small shaved ice.)

- Check out Superstition Farms Moo-ey Christmas.  Moo-ey Christmas runs the first 3 Fridays and Saturdays in December from 5:00 - 9:00 PM. For $7 enjoy a night time hayride, the petting zoo, and play in the Superstition Farm "snow." For a few extra dollars, take a picture with Santa, feed the animals, ride a horse, and enjoy breakfast for dinner from the awesome SuperFarm Super Truck. There will also be the MOO-ey Market Place to purchase one of a kind items like local jam, honey and granola, even Christmas decorations.  More tantalizing details here.  (And if you are looking to make your trip a little less expensive, forget Groupon, try this Moopon here :)

- "The City of Mesa operates surplus sales every Tuesday and Thursday from 8:00 AM to noon at the City of Mesa Warehouse, 7041 E. Adobe.  Bicycle prices have been slashed by 75 percent through Dec. 22, all items marked with a red dot are 25 percent off and all desktop computers prices have been reduced $20."  There are more items for sale (even clothes, who knew?) so for more information, go here.

- Highland Elementary, 3042 E. Adobe, is having a Winter Wonderland Boutique this Saturday, December 3rd from 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM.  Shop for handcrafted gifts, visit vendor displays and enjoy live music from the students.  Even get your picture with Santa.  Proceeds help to fund all the wonderful plays and musicals that Highland's students put on each year.  If you enjoy arts in the schools, come out and show your support.   

- Don't forget Motorcycles in Main this Friday.  Details here.

- This week my girls and I have created fun wreaths made out of materials that normally would just go in the trash.  We used old pool noodles, pie tins, an old skirt, milk jugs, old magazines and books, toilet paper tubes, diaper boxes...if you want to see our "unique" wreaths, head down to downtown Mesa and enjoy MACfest this Saturday and stick around from the tree lighting (I'm still trying to track down the time of the tree lighting.)

- Catch a showing of "A Christmas Carol" or "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" now at the MAC.  

- If you are thinking of purchasing a poinsettia for your home this winter, please buy local!  Support Westwood FFA.  "The FFA greenhouse is full of pretty poinsettias in red, red/white, red/pink and rose for $5, $10 and $15. Sue Larsen in the Ag Department will be glad to take your order. Call (480) 472-4590."  These were lovingly planted and grown by the students.  

- Finally, the Mesa Arizona Temple lights are in full display now through the end of the year.  Enjoy live performances each evening.  It's like candy for your eyes and ears and it's all free.  For a list of performances and more details, go here.

Plenty to do and see.
