Logan’s Landing presents the 11th annual Downtown Christmas Open House,   Saturday December 4th from noon to four in downtown Logansport.  Join us for a fun afternoon 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 tent at the Farmers Market lot at Fourth & Market Street, trade your canned goods for tickets, then visit the participating merchants and deposit your tickets for your chance to win.  Each participating merchant will have a drawing for a prize, and each ticket also enters you to win the grand prize — $300 in Logan’s Landing Bucks!

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.

Be sure to check out the great bargains available at the participating merchants, and get your Christmas shopping started right here in downtown Logansport!  Bring the kids (and your camera) for a visit with Santa from 1:30 to 3:00.
