Join Sarah and me downtown at First Friday this Friday night, Dec. 7, 5 to 10 p.m. In addition to the art, music and festivities, there will be new attractions we’re anxious to check out.

The Chuck Jones Experience (new at Circus Circus) is debuting in the KidZone this month at 1213 Casino Center Blvd. Chuck Jones is best known for characters such as Bugs Bunny, Wiley Coyote, Pepe Le Pew, Elmer Fudd, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and so many others. They’ll be bringing in guest animators to teach kids about animation, the history of cartoons and how to draw characters.

From there, we’ll check out the Winter Wonderland market area with artists and vendors selling things that would make great gifts, as well as snow, carriage rides, carolers and gift wrappers. Then we’re going to eat at the new BBQ Zone by the Third Street Stage, where Memphis Championship BBQ restaurants and Ben's BBQ will be joining forces in a huge 30-foot tent with an eatery area. We’re expecting amazing barbecue.

It sounds like it’s going to be bigger and better than ever! Maps, parking information and more details are available at
