Scottsbluff City Recreation Supervisor Triniti Burgner and First State Bank Marketing Director Becca Tompkins join Kevin Mooney on KNEB's News Extra program Tuesday morning. They are on the program to talk about the annual "Christmas on Broadway" event on Saturday, December 5th in downtown Scottsbluff.

Also this year, the City of Scottsbluff and First State Bank are partnering for a new event for the holiday season. The first ever “Jingle Jog” will be held at 4 p.m. that Saturday, just prior to Christmas on Broadway.

Hundreds of “Santas” will take over the streets of Scottsbluff for this 3 mile fun run/walk event.

The Jingle Jog route begin at First State Bank on Broadway and takes participants to downtown, then east past the Library, through Centennial Park, around Monument Mall, and then back to the Farmers Market Mini Park at 18th and Broadway.

Burgner says there will be no hurry in this family friendly, non-timed event. It will include carolers, decorations, and cookies and treats at numerous stations along the course. In fact, participants are encouraged to take a stroll through the Mall along the way if they like.

Registered participants will get a special “Santa” shirt and hat to wear for the Jingle Jog, along with some other extras.

Tompkins says this event is a perfect tie-in with their annual Gift of Love program. A discounted registration fee will be given to each registrant who brings a new, unwrapped toy at the time of registration. These toys will be given to the Gift of Love program.

There are also a number of volunteer and sponsorship opportunities available for the Jingle Jog.

Then after the Jingle Jog, everyone is invited to downtown Scottsbluff to enjoy the annual favorite, “Christmas on Broadway” from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. (open to the public). Burgner says this is an opportunity to enjoy the sights and sounds of the season while Christmas shopping with downtown merchants.

Broadway will be blocked off from 16th to 19th, and there will be holiday music, cookies and hot cocoa around the firepits, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” on the big screen, Holiday picture stations, a visit from Santa himself, carriage rides and more.

Registration information and materials are available at Scottsbluff City Hall and First State Bank (Scottsbluff Branch). Or call 632-0059 or 633-6109.
