CHRISTMAS ON MAIN STREET
By Izzy Pankey, Jenks Tribune intern
The Holiday season is in full swing in Jenks, America.
School is out for Winter break, lights fill neighborhood streets, and there has even been snow on the ground.
While this Holiday season looks different in many ways due to COVID-19, there are still happy moments and cheer around every corner that help bring happiness in these strange times.
Jenks Main Street, home to many small local businesses, is a place of consistent holiday cheer this season.
These downtown shops filled their store windows with displays and even decorated just as they do every year.
Jenks Tribune intern Izzy Pankey captured some of the cheerful displays happening locally and even got some pictures of last-minute décor and gifts you can pick up the next time you’re taking your drive down Main Street.
