As December kicks off, so does the long list of activities in Craig and Moffat County to get residents in the Christmas spirit. Here are just a few events happening in the next few days.
A few years ago, the world learned to enjoy the snow and ice in a new way with “Frozen.” Not that there was much difficulty of losing the love for it, but the tropics gets the same adoring treatment in “Moana.”
With the Thanksgiving leftovers in the fridge, people across the nation now have their sights set on the next big holiday season. Plenty of Christmas activities are in store for Craig and Moffat County, and here’s a guide to the Holiday Happenings for the next week.
With about a decade of magic behind us, it seems like moviegoers wouldn’t be impressed by much. Yet, the scaly, slimy, feathery, clawed and horned denizens of hammerspace within “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” show it’s still possible to be amazed.
Thanks to the NFL, NBA, MLB and more, sports are intrinsically tied to most of the big market holidays, but relaxing in your Barcalounger for a Christmas Day basketball game or headed to Coors Field for nine innings on the Fourth of July doesn’t have quite the same feel as Thanksgiving football. However, as much as I enjoy catching a pigskin battle while fighting off a tryptophan coma induced by too much turkey and debating a third slice of pumpkin pie, I already had my moment this year that blended sports with giving thanks. Moments, actually.
The weather’s getting colder to be sure, but Northwest Colorado residents rarely allow a dip in the temperature to keep them getting out and about.
The internet age has given certain mythical creatures a bad name, but they’re taking back their honor in the animated movie “Trolls” One might argue they’re overcompensating with sweetness, but hey, we all have different tastes.
If you’ve served in the military, Friday is a day for you to be honored, but veterans and civilians alike can find something to do this weekend in Northwest Colorado.
Not everyone is equipped to twist time to their advantage, take a portal as a day trip to the summit of Mount Everest or engage in a bare-knuckle brawl while maintaining the consistency of gossamer. Then again, “Doctor Strange” isn’t your average practitioner.
The 2016-17 Craig Concert Association continues next week with a trip back in time to the Swinging 1960s. A Band Called Honalee will take the stage at 7 p.m. Nov. 12 at Moffat County High School, 900 Finley Lane. The group is a tribute act celebrating the folk music trio Peter, Paul and Mary among others of the genre.
Halloween is Monday, but odds are you’ll be celebrating this weekend and the day of, so here are some things to do in Northwest Colorado for all ages to enjoy.
All minds are different, that much we know by now, as science has moved to the point where most people can accept there’s no one way to process thoughts and actions. Nevertheless, there’s still no telling what the makers of “The Accountant” were thinking while in development.
Nobody thinks of the term “toy movie” as anything other than pejorative, but just because the name Hasbro is attached doesn’t mean a film can’t rise above “Transformers,” “G.I. Joe” and “Battleship.” Sometimes, such as in “Ouija: Origin of Evil,” there actually is more than meets the eye.
Homecoming Week for Moffat County High School is here at last, and the community activities are many, while a few other fun things round out the weekend in Northwest Colorado.
