In an effort to encourage holiday shopping close to home, the Lanesboro Area Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with American Express Small Business Saturday, are presenting several events on Saturday, Nov. 29, 2014.

A free movie for kids, “Muppet Christmas Carol,” will be shown at 10 a.m. at the St. Mane Theatre in downtown Lanesboro. Lanesboro Arts is making the theater space available and the movie rights are made possible by Merchants Bank, Pedal Pushers Café and Lanesboro Web Management Group. Always a favorite at holiday time, kids will be entertained while parents have the opportunity to shop downtown Lanesboro merchants.

After the movie, Lanesboro downtown businesses are pleased to present “Winter Windows” from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. Shoppers will see store front windows being utilized by artists and entertainers creating “live” activities such as caroling, excerpts from “A Christmas Carol, ” holiday music, holiday baking, art demonstrations and more.

At 1:30 p.m. the Commonweal Theatre presents its annual holiday offering, “Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some!).” Santa Claus, Rudolph, the Grinch and just about every other holiday character make an appearance in this raucous comedy. Families and kids welcome.

This Lanesboro Area Chamber of Commerce presents these events in order to encourage holiday shoppers to spend at least one day with home town merchants. Small Business Saturday takes place Nov. 29 and is sponsored nationally by American Express.
