Looking for a way to make more room for Thanksgiving dinner? Participate in the annual Scott County Family Y Turkey Trot this morning! Start off Thanksgiving with a 5-Mile Run/Walk, a 2-Person Relay, or a 1-Mile Family Run.

 

For those of you who haven't had a chance to make it to the Festival of Trees this season, be sure to make a trip before Sunday!  Junior High students will be showing during the Snowflake Stomp on Friday, and on Saturday, bring out the whole family for Family Day to enjoy special entertainment, raffles, silent auctions, and more.

 

ragged Support locally owned businesses this year and invest in unique gifts you won't find anywhere but downtown during Black Friday and Small Business Saturday!  Grab Black Friday deals at Ragged Records, Salon Luce, and Trash Can Annie's and take advantage of special sales on Saturday throughout Bucktown and The Ruby Slipper, too.  Of course, there are plenty of great local places to grab a bite to eat or drink downtown, as well!

More great deals can be found at SiS International, Gifts Greetings & Gourmet, Source Bookstore, Major Art & Hobby, Figge & GAHC Gift Shops, and Milan Floral.  Pick up a growler of beer at Front Street or Great River Brewery and snag a a gift card at Spa Luce or a rare antique at Riverbend Antiques or Neat Stuff.

 

Buy tickets for an upcoming Adler or RME show while you're nearby.  The list goes on and on of cool gifts that also happen to support local businesses downtown.  Click here for a map of our retailers or read our handy retail list.


eotoExpect heavy bass and beats on Wednesday when EOTO takes the stage at River Music Experience!  Head out Saturday for a chance to hear some folk and bluegrass tunes from The Oolong Gurus or see the live funk band Half Naked. Don't miss out on a chance to take part in the Community Drum Circle or RME Open Mic & Jam this week, as well.

 

Eat a nice Holiday Buffet this Thanksgiving at Rhythm City Casino and feast on traditional favorites including turkey and all the trimmings.  Be sure to make it to the casino Friday for a special Black Friday Bonus Drawing and a performance by the Tom Christopher Band. Don't forget about the Freight House Farmers Market throughout the winter, too.

 

See you downtown and have a happy Thanksgiving!
