Downtown open house
Cape Girardeau's downtown merchants will be giving a warm welcome to shoppers during the third annual Christmas Open House from 6 to 9 o'clock tonight. More than 20 merchants will be offering their wares. The event is sponsored by Old Town Cape and the Southeast Missourian.
Adding to the shopping mood will be carolers, refreshments, Santa Claus, buggy rides and portrait drawing. In addition, shoppers will have a chance to win a $2,000 downtown shopping spree.
For a good time and a special shopping experience, head for downtown Cape Girardeau, where it's certainly beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
