7th Annual Prison Break Race

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to break out of a real dungeon? What about a dungeon underneath a 180 year old abandoned prison? What would it be like to stand in a place where convicts sat for years at a time without daylight, running water or contact with the outside world? If you’ve ever thought about any of that, chances are pretty good you’ve thought about how you would escape from that prison. On August 25th, Jefferson City Outdoors is going to give you that opportunity. The Prison Break Race is back! Racers will emerge from the prison’s dungeon, sprint through Housing Unit 4 and set out on a 5+ mile course that will test every facet of their athleticism. Breaking out of prison isn’t easy, and this course won’t be either. Expect the unexpected – hilly terrain combined with a slew of obstacles will be featured at every turn before the conclusion. Must be 18 years or older.


Time: Registration 7:30-8:30 am, Race 9:00-11:00 am

Location: Missouri State Penitentiary, 115 Lafayette Street

Cost: $40 per person includes t-shirt, mugshot photo and pizza slices

City of Holts Summit Christmas Parade

City of Holts Summit Christmas Parade

The Holts Summit Christmas Parade this year is scheduled for Saturday, December 9th at 2:00 pm.   This year a long list of suggested themes have been published for each entry to choose from.  We expect this year’s parade to be bigger than ever as in the past it has grown each year.  McMichael Realty has chosen "A Charlie Brown Christmas" as their theme, so don’t be surprised to see at least one very ugly Christmas tree on the floats as they pass by.

If this is your first viewing of the Holts Summit Christmas, you are sure to be in for a surprise as the parade passes by.  In addition to the usual floats, being pulled by everything from huge farm tractors to tiny lawn tractors or lively horses.  Speaking of horses, we usually have many horses and riders of all ages, displaying their skills at handling spirited mounts.  We also expect marching bands from areas surrounding Jefferson City and Holts Summit, such as Jays, Blair Oaks, Helias and New Bloomfield.  In addition to all of this, we expect lots of candy and presents to be handed out by various floats.  Make sure to make a lot of noise as McMichael Realty passes because we are in the process of wrapping 100 plus presents for the kids along the parade route.  You can use our McMichael Realty parking lot until it fills up.  Come early!
