11/16: One Enchanted Evening will take place on Thursday, November 16th from 5pm to 8pm. It is one of the most popular events in Old Town. One Enchanted Evening is an old-fashioned holiday open house, an evening where participating businesses are decorated and open at night for their customers!

11/23: Clovis Senior Activity Center is holding their Thanksgiving Luncheon on Thursday, November 23rd at 11:30am at their brand new location. The doors open at 11am and it’ll last until the food runs out. It’s a free event, and volunteers are needed. 

11/25: Small Business Saturday takes place on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and Black Friday, November 25th. It’s a day to support small businesses all over Clovis instead of strictly shopping at big corporate chain stores. The perfect way to directly support your own community during the holidays.
