What’s fun about the holidays, other than lots of good food, family and presents? The appearance of artificial ice skating rinks in downtown squares such as Ozark. This town’s historic square will offer a weekend of holiday fun with ice skating, and holiday family photos made in the Giant Snow Globe. Downtown merchants will be open late to offer a little holiday shopping. You can catch the fun, called Purple Friday Weekend, on Nov. 16-17.
