The holiday rush is kicking in to high gear, and lots of events are set in the countdown to Christmas.
There are a number of toy drives happening this weekend. Here are just a handful:
Regional Hyundai's toy drive for the Broken Arrow Neighbors ends Saturday. For every toy that is donated, donors will receive a Buy Broken Arrow ticket. That ticket could be worth $10,000, $3,000 or $2,000 dollars.
Muskogee police officers continue their camp-out toy drive today at the Arrowhead Mall. Cops will be on site taking donations until 5:00pm Saturday.
A Skiatook chiropractor is also getting into the giving spirit. His office is the drop for the annual Ryder Herring toy drive. It's named for a young boy who is battling a horrible disease. Toys will be collected from 8:00a-5:00p Saturday.
There's plenty of good music and entertainment this weekend, too.
