Santa captivated these girls’ imaginations last year!

On Saturday, Dec. 6, The Matthews Opera House & Arts Center hosts two events during the Spearfish annual Holidazzle Parade of Lights and Christmas Stroll.  Both events are free and open to the public.


Kids and adults alike can share their Christmas wishes with Santa from 1:00-4:00 p.m. Santa will be on hand in the afternoon to meet and listen to children’s Christmas wishes in the Opera House Lobby from 1:00-4:00 p.m. Hot cider will be on hand. Visitors are encouraged to bring their cameras.

00-gift-wrapThis year’s holiday art exhibition features all current artists represented by the gallery. The exhibit highlights original works of art from our participating jewelers, potters, fabric artists, and new gallery artists. An added bonus is the offer of free gift wrapping of all purchases. Bring the entire family and kick off the holiday season in style. Many new, lower priced items will be featured during the holiday season. Tables will be set up with $50-and-under handmade gift options for your shopping convenience.

“This is a high point for holiday shopping in the gallery,” said Ava Sauter, the Matthews Opera House Gallery and Events Manager. Patrons are encouraged to dress in their favorite holiday outfits. “There will be plenty of holiday spirit in the gallery on the 6th and we hope to share that with our patrons,” continues Sauter. The holiday art exhibit runs from Dec. 6-27.
