Downtown Muscatine to host annual holiday events

MUSCATINE, Iowa–Downtown Muscatine is kicking off the holiday season with two great events. First up is the annual Holiday Open House on Sunday, Nov. 15 from 12-4 p. m. Start your holiday shopping off right by supporting small, locally owned businesses. Come enjoy in-store specials, entertainment, and refreshments at participating businesses. There will be over 20 downtown businesses that will be open during the Holiday Open House. Some downtown businesses will also be open on Sundays through the holiday season. Visit the Downtown Muscatine Facebook page for more details.

Next up is an over 35-year annual tradition, Muscatine Journal’s Holiday Stroll. This year’s stroll will get a slight makeover. Instead of one evening of strolling cheer, you will get three! From December 3rd-December 5th be dazzled with holiday cheer in Downtown Muscatine. Enjoy the lighting of the Community Christmas Tree, enjoy live entertainment, a storefront window display contest, treats and more.
