Our Favorite DAY of the year! It’s time to celebrate what we in Downtown Iowa City Celebrate EVERY DAY but on a national level!
Join us on November 24th for Small Business Saturday! Downtown Iowa City as a regional center of locally owned businesses once again will celebrate the importance behind shopping local.
Free Photos with Santa: Santa will leave his busy workshop for four special trips downtown to meet the area’s good girls and boys. Families can get FREE photos with the jolly ol’ fella at FilmScene (118 E. College St.) from 11:30am-2:30pm.
Free Horse Drawn Carriage Rides: There is no better way to take in the sights and sounds for the holiday season than a Horse Drawn Carriage Ride around downtown. Enjoy a whimsical ride while singing carols to the tune of antique sleigh bells, nestled in the enclosed comfort provided by Country Gentleman’s Horse and Carriage. Sponsored by Hills Bank and Trust Company from 11:30-2:30pm at their downtown location, the carriage rides are FREE, but spots are not guaranteed so get there early!
Downtown Hunt for the Elves: There will be 25+ elves hiding all over Downtown Iowa City businesses waiting to be found. The community is invited to find at least 15 of the elves in downtown businesses to win prizes.
