Brisk days and evenings prompted the Blazin’ M Ranch to stage what they call “Holiday Hoedowns” Nov. 29 through Dec. 30. Owners Ryan and Leila Glass said special activities for younger kids include bounce houses, face-painting, Putt-Putt golf, wall climbing and a mechanical bull. For the older folks, the Westernmotif frontier town is in full service with wagon rides, shopping, a saloon, vendors, target shooting, axe throwing, photo studio and other memory-makers. “We’ve planned our program to be appropriate for the season. On show nights, when the barn opens where we serve our tasty home-cooked meal of chicken and barbecue ribs and all the fixins’, including a not-to-beforgotten dessert of spice cake with cream cheese, we’ll follow that with our hour-long family-appropriate musical show,” the two said. “We’ve tailored the show this year so it’s fresh and memorable. Some talented entertainers and musicians will perform the music of noted western and country stars like Chris Stapleton, George Strait, Jerry Lee Lewis, Tonya Tucker, Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, Bob Willis and the Texas Playboys, Elvis Presley and Patsy Cline.”
Named a Trip Adviser ‘Traveler’s Choice’ Just recently the Blazin’ M Ranch received a TripAdvisor recommendation as a popular place to visit in the Verde Valley.
