Top 5 Things to do in Walla Walla over break

1. Thanksgiving dinner with George Bridges

Each year President Bridges hosts a Thanksgiving dinner for students staying in Walla Walla over the holiday break. Come to Baker Faculty Center at 5 p.m. (date/time not confirmed!!) on Nov. 26 for your favorite holiday treats, a chance to mingle with the president and an opportunity to meet other students staying on campus.

2. Be the first to witness snowfall in Walla Walla

The ten-day weather forecast predicts highs in the mid-thirties next week, with a fair chance of snow. It may be your lucky day if you are the first to witness campus under a white blanket of untainted snow: it won’t stay that way for long. Be sure to bring a camera and brag to your friends!

3. Run the Turkey Trot

Don’t head off to dinner with George Bridges just yet: before packing on the pie and stuffing, attend this fun 5k race downtown. Starting on 1st and Main Street at 8:30 a.m. on Nov. 26, this Thanksgiving-themed 5k run and 1 mile walk is a fundraiser for the Blue Mountain Chapter of the American Red Cross. Registration is $15 on race day.

4. Attend “The Miracle Worker” at the Little Theatre of Walla Walla

Take a break from the Whitman scene and attend a play at the volunteer-based Little Theatre of Walla Walla. Performed at 8 p.m. on Nov. 20-21 and 27-29, “The Miracle Worker” is a biographical play based on the life of Helen Keller. The Little Theatre of Walla Walla is located at 1130 Sumach St.

5. Sleep, relax and catch up on some of our recommended movies and books!

Take advantage of the painfully silent dorms: they won’t stay that way for long. Sleep in until noon, spend a lazy day in bed and check out a book or movie or two.
