Love is in the air. Or hopefully, it will be for you, by the time Feb 14th rolls around. It’s a great time to show a little extra love to that special someone in your life. Or, if you are rocking life solo, go ahead and show a little extra love to yourself, you beautiful soul, you!
I’ve gathered up a few ideas to make that time of love unique. Whether you’re married, single, or somewhere in between, 417 land has all kindsa fun to be had in the month of L O V E.
Date Night on the Pottery Wheel
If you’re a product of the 80’s then I’m sure you too picture that famous scene from Ghost when you think of romantic pottery throwing. I can currently hear Unchained Melody in my brain as I type about this pottery date night.
Anyway, if getting your hands dirty with your date sounds like a fun time, this one’s for you.
Art Zone in Nixa will be hosting this event. You and your boo will each get to create and glaze a piece of pottery on the wheel (and maybe even recreate that Ghost scene).
Saturday, Feb 11th. Check out all the deets here.
All my single ladies, all my single ladies. And men too. You can get in on this one and treat yo self!
The adorable little town of Fair Grove is having a Chocolate Walk on Feb 11th.
Take a stroll down their historic Main St and sample your way through chocolate goodness that the shops and merchants will be spoiling you with.
All the info is here (on the right hand side of the page).
For those of you looking to work off all that chocolate you’ve consumed in the spirit of the holiday, get your boots on and get ready to show off your moves on the dance floor!
Midnight Rodeo teaches you and your partner how to boot-scoot and boogie on Thursday (and sometimes Friday) nights.
The dancing lessons won’t start until 8pm, so you’ll have plenty of time to wine and dine before heading on over to the club. Stick around after the lessons to strut your newfound two-step knowledge on the dance floor as the dj plays line-danceable jams late into the night.
Mosey on over here for more info.
Cocktail Making at Finley Farms
The Finley Farms’ property is the ultimate romantic spot. String-lit walkways, a serene river running under a walking bridge, not to mention, top notch dining.
Kick that romance up a notch by taking your 21 or older date over to their Workshop for a Couple’s Cocktails class.
You and your boozed-up love will taste specially paired hors d’oeuvres while learning how to make three unique cocktails.
And it all happens on actual Valentines Day (Feb 14th). Get your tickets here.
Beer, Wine, Cheese, & Chocolate Festival
The three ways to any human’s heart: booze, cheese, and chocolate!
Take your plus one (and a readily empty stomach) to eat and drink your way through all the best indulgence 417 land has to offer!
Get your tickets at the door or reserve them online here.
Soulfire Marriage Conference
Even the most perfect marriage has room for improvement. What’s more romantic than taking your betrothed on a weekend filled with ways to bring you closer?
This conference not only has all the tools to strengthen your marriage, it’s also finishes off the weekend with a retro prom!!!
The conference is two incredible days of speakers, worship, workshops, and finishes up on Saturday night with dinner and dancing.
Feb 10th and 11th. Talk it over with your bride (or groom) and then get all the info/tickets here.
And Much, Much, More
I’ve covered just a few of the Valentines happenings in 417 land. Pick your fave, or find something else that suits you. Most importantly, make sure to take advantage of the time and celebrate some love.
