Over the river and through the woods… Cape Girardeau is the perfect spot to celebrate the Christmas season with these holiday events that hearken back to festivities of yesteryear!
Christmas at the Glenn House showcases this grand Victorian lady dressed up for the season. Christmas trees fill every room of this restored Victorian home, and the decorations are brand new each holiday season. Volunteers spend months pulling ideas from magazines, hunting down supplies and preparing to fill this home with holiday cheer. Take a tour on weekends throughout December, and stop by the Carriage House for treats and hot drinks afterwards.
Churches at least 100 years old throughout Cape Girardeau, Perry and Bollinger counties put on their holiday best for the annual Christmas Country Church Tour on Dec. 17-18! Festive music and refreshments are on hand at each charming church.
A Christmas dessert table from 1814 is featured at the Historic Byrd House, and unique American made wares are available for purchase in the holiday gift shop. Enjoy this new holiday tradition on Saturday evenings through Dec. 19.
Get away from the Christmas rush and get back to what the holidays are all about in Cape Girardeau!
