‘Christmas in Killdeer’ featuring movie, free swim and Santa Claus

Ever wonder what your pets do when you’re not home?

He naps, right?


Hmmmm …

Ever wonder why the remote always seems to be on the floor when you get home?

Who left the stereo on? And where did that Earth, Wind & Fire album come from?

There’s a soda missing, too.

Spot? Naahh … he’s napping. Fluffy? Nope, she’s snoring in the corner.

Weird, huh?

Maybe those questions and more will be answered Sunday afternoon at the “Christmas in Killdeer” celebration, which will be held at the High Plains Cultural Center and the Killdeer Aquatics & Wellness Center.

The Killdeer Park and Recreation District is hosting the celebration, which will run from 1-4 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

And as part of the celebration, the parks and rec will be showing “The Secret Life of Pets” on the big screen at the cultural center.

The popular animated movie, which has grossed more than $800 million, is about a terrier named Max and how his life is turned upside down when his owner takes in Duke, a stray whom Max instantly dislikes. They share many hijinks and adventures and get into their share of trouble.

Popcorn, drinks and other snacks will be served during the movie.

But that’s not all. Prizes will be given out and there will be a special early appearance by Santa Claus. Parents, however, must accompany children under the age of 5.

Meanwhile, the parks and rec board will be hosting an “Open Swim” for youths in grades seventh through 12th at the Killdeer Aquatics & Wellness Center. The celebration will include games and prizes, hot food and cold drinks … and music … lots of “toe-tapping, get-down-and-get-groovy” music.

The “Christmas In Killdeer” celebration is a way of saying thank you for the great support and contributions the community has shown, said James Mousseau, Killdeer Parks and Recreation director.
