Don't miss the Bethalto Christmas Village this year! There is also still time to purchase a giving tree. It will be open again tonight, Friday, Dec. 8 - Sun. Dec. 10 from 5-8 p.m., and next weekend on Friday, Dec. 15 and Sat. Dec. 16, also from 5-8 p.m.
Created by Jane Ahasay with help from volunteers and the village, the Bethalto Christmas Village is a free, walk-through Christmas attraction for the entire family. The live nativity includes a petting zoo, and guests are invited to view small cottages sponsored and decorated by several local businesses. This year, the amount of those cottages grew from six to 10. There are also 75 "giving trees" in the village this year as well. Click here to read the full story
