Tomorrow marks the return of the Holiday Promenade – one of the most popular events in the Historic East Village. This year’s 10th anniversary event will feature free horse and carriage rides, boutique shopping, caroling and store events from 5 – 9 p.m. There will also be fireworks again this year, and they will begin at 6:20 p.m.
This year businesses are competing in the first annual Winter Wonderland Holiday Promenade Window Decorating Contest. Enjoy this charming district in downtown Des Moines while perusing beautiful window displays, riding a horse drawn carriage, sipping on refreshments offered by area businesses, tasting a meal at an nearby restaurant, or listening to holiday music floating through the air. The Historic East Village and Promenade Sponsors will provide bags featuring samples and special offers, plus a shopping and dining map and ballot for Viewer’s Choice Best Window. Pick up your bag at Brenton Plaza, Baby Boomer’s or The LifeServe Blood Center while supplies last.
So head on down to the East Village and get a start on your holiday shopping!
