Around Town: Naughty and Nice Night still ahead on CF Main Street

Jessica Dally

We’ve all heard the classic story of The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg; however, not everyone has seen the movie with Tom Hanks, so I recently went to the Holiday Hoopla in downtown Cedar Falls and watched the movie. It was a free showing, and a lot of younger kids were there, but it was still a great event. It really gets people into the Christmas spirit and allows children of all ages to believe in Santa Claus.

It almost made me believe in him again. The showing was at the Oster Regent Theatre on Main Street. Families of all sizes were there, and it was a special thing.

Holiday Hoopla isn’t going to last much longer on Main Street. Both the Trolley Rides and the Naughty and Nice night are on Dec. 16. If you go to the library parking lot between 6 and 8 p.m, you can get a FREE horse drawn carriage ride provided by Jim and Cecilia Mudd.

Naughty and Nice night is still in the plan making stage, but it’s a great way for you to find out whether you will be receiving great presents or, unfortunately, will you be receiving a hard lump of coal. Those two events are the last events around Christmas time. Stores on Main Street have also opened their businesses later for a longer shopping period.

Don’t miss out on a great family adventure down on Main Street. There are only a few things yet going on, so bundle up and make your way out to Holiday Hoopla. It’s a family experience that you don’t want to miss and a lot of the things going on are free.

So, go get on a trolley ride and then go find out if you’ve been naughty or if you’ve been nice.

Remember Santa is watching, and he’s checking his list twice.
