There is a little witch in all of us …
Let the inner witch fly during Witches Night Out, Thursday, October 26 in Geneseo. A hauntingly fun night filled with frightful treats and an evening specials passport through Geneseo’s specialty merchants, restaurants, and businesses! Your passport is good for a fun-filled evening of letting your inner witch shop!
Drive the back roads to Bishop Hill for a memorial holiday experience Lucia Nights. As you enter the historic 19th Century village, you will be greeting with a candlelit glow of luminary-lined sidewalks and candles in the windows of shops, museums, and homes. A little snow doesn’t hurt the ambiance, either.
Lucia’s (young girls with candles) serve coffee and sweets in village museums and shops. Enjoy a chili/soup supper at the Methodist Church or dine at local eateries. Perhaps do some last minute Christmas shopping? Carolers from local high schools will be strolling the village both evenings.
