West Des Moines, IA (November 1, 2012) – Historic Valley Junction will hold its annual Jingle in the Junction open house events on Thursday, November 29, December 6 and December 13. The businesses in Historic Valley Junction and the streets will be lined with over 150,000 twinkling lights.
Performance groups – church choirs, Girl Scout troops, youth groups, instrumental and vocal performers – are encouraged and needed to complete the holiday mood along the streets of this historic business district. Groups may perform at any of the three scheduled events, with several locations still available.
In addition, the Jingle in the Junction celebrations will include FREE horse-drawn carriage rides. There will also be merchant events and specials, caroling provided by local groups, holiday food vendors and photos with Rudolph at First Bank on December 6.
This event wouldn’t be complete without…Santa and Mrs. Claus! Our favorite holiday celebrities will be visiting Historic Valley Junction for each Holiday Open House. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be listening to wishes at the West Des Moines Community Center, 217 5th Street, in Historic Valley Junction.
Historic Valley Junction is six blocks of specialty shops that include art galleries, antique shops, fashion boutiques, salons, service businesses and restaurants. Most of the shops will be open until 9:00 the evenings of the Holiday Open House.
