Hotel Bothwell’s Thanksgiving Lighting Is Better Than Ever
One annual tradition here in Sedalia is the lighting of the Hotel Bothwell. Since it's such a beautiful historic building, it's a real treat to see all the lights, Christmas decorations, and little touches that really kick off the Holiday Season.
So, when is it this year? Well. You know it's Thanksgiving night, but here are the deets. Hotel Bothwell will host its annual Thanksgiving night lighting and firework display November 24th at 7:00 p.m. They'll have some musical entertainment in the Hotel Bothwell lobby at 6:30 p.m. (think Christmas Carols, you know) with the lighting countdown and fireworks to follow at 7:00pm.
And don't be like me and forget that it's coming. I know a few times I forgot it and thought someone was having fun with some kind of illegal fireworks or something. One year I had a guest in my house, and they were legit freaked out because they thought someone was having a Matrix style gun fight. When I pointed out the windows to show them the fireworks..... well. Laughter was had.
And if you can't make it cos you're working, or the kids can't be out in the cold, or you're just stuck at home, no worries! The event will also be live-streamed from the Hotel Bothwell’s Facebook page. The countdown to the lighting begins at 7:00 p.m. with fireworks synchronized to Holiday music immediately following.
Basically, the transition from Thanksgiving to Christmas isn't complete without this event over at the Hotel Bothwell. Make your plans to see it either way!
