Coon Rapids Goes Big for Christmas

It looks like folks in Coon Rapids have borrowed the “yes, and …” approach from improv comedy for their annual Christmas in a Small Town festival on Dec. 3.

A lighted parade? Yes! And live reindeer? Yes! And carriage rides. And a chocolate fountain buffet. And mini golf. And bingo. And much, much more before the Pale Moons – singer-songwriters Chad Elliott and Anna Kopaska – wrap things up with a concert at the Raccoon River Social Club.

To pull it off, every last one of the Iowa Great Place’s 1,300 locals seems to be pitching in to make this year’s small-town shindig a very big deal.
