Santa is making his regular stop in Briarcliff Village again this year. Bring the whole family out to meet him on Saturday December 7, 14, or 21 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Tango Pizza. This is one of our best loved holiday traditions, and a great way to celebrate with your kids. Plus, just like every year, it’s free of charge! Dress your little ones in their holiday best, as we’re providing a professional photographer to capture the moment. Your family will leave with a 4×6 keepsake picture, commemorating the 2013 Christmas season. Pictures will also be available online, so you can post them on Facebook, or email to your family and friends. We can’t wait to see you for this very special, free family event.
Join us for one of the most beautiful displays in the city when Briarcliff Village lights up for the holidays at the Annual Holiday Lighting Ceremony. This much-loved Northland tradition continues in 2013 with more excitement and family fun than ever before. At 5 p.m., Santa Claus will arrive for FREE pictures with every boy and girl. The 5-Star Jazz band will play a musical accompaniment, while families enjoy face painting, refreshments, holiday movies, and more. Don’t miss that special moment when the lights go on, at 6:30 p.m. This year’s event includes new, Dancing Holiday Lights for the first time in the Northland. Bring the whole family and usher in everyone’s favorite time of year. This community event is free and open to everyone.

Each year, Briarcliff Village provides a fun and safe environment for children under 12 to enjoy Halloween festivities. This year, we’ll have Halloween trick-or-treating from 4-6pm on October 31. Local merchants, residents, and community groups have volunteered to pass out candy and other goodies so kids can put on their costumes and enjoy a safe, happy Halloween.
This event is free of charge for all kids under 12. When you arrive, register at the Briarcliff Village table for your chance to win costume prizes, then trick-or-treat your way store-to-store throughout the entire center, and finish the evening off with crafts at GreenAcres Market. It’s bigger and better than ever before, so you won’t want to miss out!
The Farmers’ Market will close for the season on Thursday, September 26. To commemorate the occasion and celebrate the coming of fall, please join GreenAcres Market in a special Chili Challenge to benefit a worthy cause. Anyone can enter their chili in the contest, and anyone can be a taster. To vote for your favorites, just make a small donation of your choosing to that station. Whichever chili receives the largest amount will be declared the official winner, and all donations will go to charity.
If you’d like to enter your best chili recipe, just call Joel at GreenAcres at (816) 746-0010. Please register by Wednesday, September 25. The winner of the contest will receive a $25 gift card to Briarcliff Village.
Our charity of choice is the Great Plains SPCA, a Metro Area animal rescue organization that provides no-kill shelters for homeless animals and promotes the adoption and rescue of pets.

As a personal trainer, fitness center owner and student of health promotion, Sarah Giboney is dedicated to helping others achieve higher levels of well-being. It’s a mission she is excited to carry out as the new owner of John Scott Fitness in Briarcliff Village.
As an only child who encountered bullying at school, Sarah found herself using food as an escape from loneliness. Although she wasn’t overweight at first, an injury leaving her on crutches for over six weeks as a young adult made her eating habits catch up with her. What followed was a 10-year struggle with health, nutrition and exercise.
Then three years ago, after being laid off from her less-than-fulfilling desk job, Sarah made the decision to solidify her dedication to healthy living by making it her profession. Since that time, she says she’s learned to control her nutrition habits, earning a degree in Health Promotion along the way.
“The best way I know how to maintain my improved lifestyle is to be an advocate for the health of others,” Sarah says. “My philosophy includes gaining and sharing knowledge, practicing moderation, and demolishing the current media driven image of the ideal human form which is often at odds with true health.”
As owner and personal trainer at John Scott Fitness, Sarah hopes that sharing her journey will make a positive impact on the lives of others.
