People in all parts of Muscatine County have started to feel the excitement of the most wonderful time of the year. To begin their city’s celebrations, West Liberty will hold their annual Holiday Open House on Sunday, November 24th from 3:00 to 6:00pm

A citywide event, many West Liberty businesses have partnered to put on an unforgettable holiday outing. Kids looking to write letters to Santa can get some help from the friendly staff at the West Liberty Index. For those wanting to meet Mr. and Mrs. Claus themselves, they can visit with them at the West Liberty Foods Market. Santa’s live reindeer will attend the Holiday Open House too and will greet visitors behind city hall.

For those looking for a little artistic fun, the Holiday Open House has many opportunities. The West Liberty Area Arts Council will have an exhibit on display at the Liberty Social Club. Nicole Rock’s School of Dance will have window dancers, and Jan’s Flowers will host a Lyle Beaver concert until 4:00 pm. The Chime Choir will also perform at 4:30 pm at the West Liberty Public Library (WLPL).

Anyone with kids can find many activities perfectly suited to their little one’s interests. The New Strand Theatre will show holiday favorite Frozen at 4:30 and 7:30 pm. The WLPL will have green screen activities led by Dennis Cooper and card decorating going on in their Children’s Library as well. People of all ages in need of a snack may visit the WLPL as well for free pumpkin pie, courtesy of MidwestOne Bank.

Because giving back to the community represents such an important part of the holidays, the Holiday Open House will feature several events to get people in a giving mood. For the length of the event, volunteers will collect donations for the food pantry and infant closet in the Meeting Room. LULAC, TriT, the West Liberty Lions Club, and the West Liberty Rotary Cub will also accept monetary donations to support their various outreach projects. At 4:00 pm, a representative of the Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine will come to the WLPL to present Impact Grants to several organizations.

To conclude this evening of holiday fun, the Holiday Open House will end with a Community Tree lighting ceremony by city hall at 5:30 pm. Leading up to the ceremony, attendees can place luminaries in honor of loved ones along the luminary walk and have their names read prior to the tree lighting.
