Feeling Festive in Story and Boone Counties

If you’re looking to really get into the holiday spirit, look no further than Ames. During the weekend of Dec. 2-4, the city is hosting its Merry and Bright Holiday Weekend full of activities and shopping throughout Story and Boone counties.

Stroll through a light show in Reiman Gardens, visit the holiday market at Prairie Moon Winery, take a ride on the Santa Express at the Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad or enjoy all-you-can-eat malted waffles with all the fixings at the Iowa Arboretum. And that’s not even half of the lineup. There’s also the WinterFest and Snow Magic kickoffs. See the full list of weekend plans here.
