12 Days of Great Falls Cheer: Great Falls Grateful

This weekend, the Great Falls Symphony has their Christmas concert and will be joined by the Symphonic Choir.

Here’s a peek at last year’s Christmas concert.

This year, weather dependent, we’re hoping to start a new community tradition with a snowball fight/snowman building day on Dec. 23. If we finally get some snow, go to your local park, with friends and family and we’ll see if we can get a bunch of people to join us in Gibson Park for a little bit of fun.
