Children's Downtown Christmas Shoppe
This popular event, now in its 3rd year, held each year at the Lions Den in downtown Perkins, is geared towards children that would like to come in and buy a little Christmas gift for their mothers and fathers, grandparents, siblings, teachers, etc. The idea is that, with the help of donations from the Chamber and the Perkins community, there will be small, reasonably priced gifts that a child could come in, pick out, purchase, have wrapped, and then give as a gift.
Children between the ages of 3 and 12 will be able to purchase a gift for $1 - $3 with the help of a volunteer. Gifts will be wrapped by volunteers for a surprise on Christmas morning.
All children are welcome while supplies last.

Help us Clean Up Perkins on March 28 by picking up trash!

Each spring, the ODOT Trash-Off brings together thousands of volunteers who are dedicated to making Oklahoma cleaner, greener and more beautiful."
The event, sponsored by the Perkins Community Chamber of Commerce, usually draws hundreds of treasure hunters to town.

Listings on the garage sale map cost $10, which includes a classifieds page listing along with the map listing. Listings outside the city limits will also be included. The deadline is 1 p.m. Monday, March 30, for garage sale listings in the special pullout section.

The event features an opportunity for town residents to drop off large items free of charge at special dumpsters. Larger items, which cannot fit into garage trucks, can be taken to the large dumpsters located at the City’s West Shop at 319 E. Industrial (Knipe St., and Industrial).
The large item dumpsters are available only to Perkins residents. In the past, many out-of-town residents used the opportunity to bring trash into town during the event. People who come to drop off items in the dumpsters will be required to prove their residency by showing their driver’s license or any utility bill showing an address.
