Mongoose Junction will host an “Evening in the Courtyard” on Friday starting at 5 pm. The event has been held annually on the day after Thanksgiving to kick off the holiday season with an exciting evening of events and entertainments and serves as a kind of homecoming for many of our residents returning for the winter.
