Home for the Holidays

By Staff | Nov 26, 2010

I can’t wait for this weekend!

Because of the holiday you are receiving your newspaper one day late, so the “weekend” will already be here.

Home for the Holidays Spectacular will be just that – spectacular! Emmetsburg Retail Association members have been planning this event for some time. There are two venues: the Chamber/Welcome Center and Holiday Headquarters at the former Calico Cupboard. There will be plenty of music: the Algona Cornbelt Chorus will sing at the Welcome Center and then wander through the shops. They always have such a good time – and we always enjoy their music so much. Biblical Brass &?Beyond will take their turn outside the Welcome Center. This brass band made their debut performance at Home for the Holidays last season. And Glenn Henriksen will be playing music at Holiday Headquarters, where Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus will greet guests. Taking a tour around town in a horse-drawn wagon adds another homey touch to the holidays.

Families home for Thanksgiving may enjoy Home for the Holidays more than anyone. The event is what it says:?a touch of “home.”

My favorite event is Saturday morning when we help host Breakfast With Santa. What a treat to watch little ones tell Santa about their Christmas wish list. Some are timid… others are sceptical…but they still want to believe. Little ones grow up oh, so fast.

Come join us. It’s way too fun!
