Christmas activities for all!

Eldon has a full day of Christmas activities to keep you busy this Saturday, December 4.

Christmas Dinner: 11-2, KD Center

Tour of Homes: Never been inside the American Gothic House? Now’s your chance! Take a peek into six of Eldon’s homes and businesses from 10-2 and 4-8. Tickets for the Tour can be purchased for $5 at the Opera House.

Christmas Tree Wanderland: Friday, 9-5; Saturday, 9-9; Sunday, 11-3. Find the Christmas spirit while touring beautiful trees decorated by the community at the McHaffey Opera House.

The Depot will also be decorated and open for viewing on Friday from 5-9 pm and all day Saturday from 10-9.

Gingerbread House Decorating: American Gothic House Center, 1-4 pm. Parents and kids 12 and under are invited to decorate a graham cracker gingerbread house on Saturday. Arrive early to enjoy a wide selection of candy decorations!

Also on view: Gingerbread villages built by community members.

Boy Scout Soup Supper: KD Center, 5-7 pm. All this activity will likely get your stomach growling again, so stop in for soup at the KD Center.

Park Lighting Ceremony: 7 pm. Cap off an exciting day with Christmas carols and the lighting of the park!

On the web this week, Christine Buckley of the Huffington Post gives Eldon wonderful press in a review of her stay at the American Gothic House. The Eastern Iowa Mini Club posted many photos of their visit to the house and Center as well!

Stay warm!
