LOGAN’S LANDING PRESENTS 2018 DOWNTOWN CHRISTMAS OPEN HOUSE

November 14th, 2018

Logan’s Landing presents the 19th annual Downtown Christmas Open House,   Thursday December 6th from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. in downtown Logansport.  Join us for a fun evening of shopping and the chance to win great prizes – all while helping our community’s less fortunate.

Next time you’re at the grocery store, pick up some extra canned food and pet items, then bring them with you to the Downtown Christmas Open House.  Visit the Open House Headquarters in the Depot at Fourth & Melbourne, trade your canned goods for tickets, then visit the 16 participating merchants and deposit your tickets for your chance to win hundreds of dollars in prizes!

Pet items collected will be given to the Cass County Humane Society, and food items will be split between Emmaus Mission Center and the Salvation Army … so you are helping others while entering to win.  All three organizations also need donations of paper goods and cleaning supplies.

Be sure to check out the great bargains available at the participating merchants, and get your Christmas shopping started right here in downtown Logansport!

FALL EVENTS ENJOYED BY ALL!

October 29th, 2018

Logan’s Landing thanks everyone who helped make this year’s Downtown Spooktacular a great success!  We estimate over a thousand trick-or-treaters converged on downtown Logansport on October 25th for this long-time annual tradition.  Thank you to the volunteers who helped make this event happen, and thank you to the 28 participating merchants!  Most of the trick-or-treaters stayed for the Elks Halloween Parade immediately after the Downtown Spooktacular – congratulations to Elks Lodge #66 for continuing this tradition year after year and generation after generation.

Adding to the Halloween atmosphere downtown were 39 scarecrows created by local businesses and organizations.  Again this year, we were amazed at the creativity and imagination displayed!  Congratulations once again to the Judge’s Choice Award winner: Mom’s Taxi, and to the People’s Choice Award winner: Logansport Fire Department.

Happy Halloween from Logan’s Landing!
