Cape Girardeau’s Christmas Classics

‘Tis the season for cozy holiday favorites in Cape Girardeau! Year after year, the following events are written into family yearbooks as happy holiday memories. Savor an old favorite or start a brand new tradition with these established seasonal events in Cape Girardeau.

Christmas at the Glenn House opens for their annual holiday tours November 25th, and you can wander through this beautifully decorated Victorian home every Saturday and Sunday afternoon from 1 – 4 p.m. through December 18th.  See the home aglow at a Candlelight Tour from 5 – 8 p.m. December 9th and 17th.  Already toured during a Christmas past? The decorations are entirely refreshed every year, making this a Christmas tradition that never gets old.  Don’t miss cookies, hot chocolate and apple cider in the carriage house after your tour.

Hutson’s Fine Furniture’s has been gathering a festive crowd since 1960 for the Thanksgiving unveiling of their holiday window. The window is in the capable hands of a third generation of Hutsons and is available from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. every day from Thanksgiving through Christmas for viewing. Little ones glue noses to the chilly glass to gaze at Santa’s workshop, an elves motorcycle shop or other Christmasy scenes, as the display changes every year.

Cheery lights brighten Cape County Park North every year from Thanksgiving through New Year’s. The light display began with 11 displays in 1987 as a cooperative effort to provide a spot for Cape Girardeau citizens to decorate together for the holidays. The entire county pitches in to showcase displays. Grab a hot chocolate and bundle the whole family in the car for a slow cruise around the park to admire favorites from years past and new displays.

Add some fresh greenery to your holiday decorations at Meier Horse Shoe Pines farm, located just a few minutes from Cape Girardeau on the outskirts of Jackson, MO.  The shop features fresh greenery wreaths, garlands and more, and you can hop aboard the carriage pulled by the Belgian horses (“the boys”) to pick out your very own piece of Christmas magic from their 14 acres of Scotch and White pine trees.

From our family to yours, we hope your holiday seasonal is magical! Share your festive adventures, tag your pictures with #VisitCape!
