PRESCOTT, AZ - Ring in the holiday season in Prescott Friday night with local musicians, performers, businesses and food at this year's Acker Musical Showcase.
The Musical Showcase, a non-profit association, awards scholarships to deserving performing arts recipients through public donations from annual events like Friday's holiday music event.
