Downtown Christmas Open House slated for Thursday

Downtown Christmas Open House slated for Thursday

Whether community members are looking to give to those in need, shop for holiday gifts or win prizes, they will have the opportunity to see what downtown Logansport has to offer Thursday.

The 14th annual Downtown Christmas Open House will be 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday. Like in years past, canned food and pet items will be collected at the Depot, Fourth and Melbourne.

For every canned item, one ticket will be distributed and guests will then visit participating businesses for the chance to win a prize. Pet items will be donated to the Cass County Humane Society and food items will be divided between the Salvation Army and Emmaus Mission Center.

The starting point of the open house will be at the Depot and from there visitors can visit the 19 participating merchants.

The open house will also allow people to give to those less fortunate, begin or complete holiday shopping and support downtown businesses, Becki Harris, executive director of Logan’s Landing.

In conjunction with the downtown open house, local artists and businesses are teaming up to raise money for The Logansport Backpack Program.

The inaugural event, “Headboards 4 Hunger” will feature headboards that have been refashioned in to something unique and new. Nine headboards redesigned by local artists will be available during a silent auction from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday. All funds raised will go to The Logansport Backpack Program.

The Gray Mill and Graybeal’s Carpet Plus will be open during the downtown open house, but will have the silent auction and other activities from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday.

Mollie Graybeal, who has been planning the open house and silent auction, said the headboards created by the local artists are incredible.

There are several artists who created headboards including Melanie Kelley, Kado Downs, Teri Partridge and Kaylee Morris.

During the silent auction, visitors will be able to take photographs with Santa and Mrs. Clause, enjoy a dessert and create-your-own cocoa bar or watch a holiday movie while relaxing on the store’s bedding.
