Final details are being addressed as the 32nd edition of the Merchants Open House returns this weekend to downtown Woodbury. For the past several years, the event has been known as Cannon Country Christmas.
Participating merchants will offer specials, unique items, giveaways and treats. Stores will be open late Friday night and offers will continue Saturday. If tradition is true, Santa will be visiting downtown beginning at 5pm Friday. Parents will be encouraged to take pictures of their children with the North Pole’s number one elf, Ole Saint Nick.
Members of Dillion Street Baptist Church will recreate the first Christmas with a living nativity scene on the square complete with animals. The recreation will be offered Friday evening from 5 till 8pm.
On Saturday, the day will end with the Merchants Luminated Christmas Parade beginning at 6pm.
Cannon County’s Radio Station invites you to enjoy the event and remember that Christmas shopping should start at home.
