Block party Friday


December 9, 2015 - 12:00 AM

Downtown Iola will come alive with the Christmas spirit Friday night when merchants participate in their annual Block Party.
Entertainment, refreshments and sales will be provided on the Iola square from 4 to 7 p.m.
A grand prize drawing of $275 in gift certificates is available to those who visit participating merchants and have their cards punched. The punch cards are available at any of the 11 retailers or at Rookies Sports Bar, which will have a Happy Hour and offer food specials from 7 to 8 o’clock that night.
Maggie Wilson, former Iolan, will perform on her guitar and sing from 6 to 7 p.m. in front of the former Classy Attic on the south side of the square.
Also, Nikki Peters’ photo booth will be set up inside the now vacant store complete with props to make for festive-styled photos. A slight fee will be charged to have your picture taken in the booths.
Though vacant, the former store is festively decorated. Duane McGraw and Jan Knewtson each took a window on either side of the entryway and worked their magic. McGraw owns Duane’s Flowers and Knewtson owns Sophisticated Rose and Sophisticated Rose Plus.
Participating merchants include Duane’s Flowers, Sophisticated Rose, McGinty-Whitworth, Around the Corner, Audacious Boutique, Town and Country, Salon Nyne, The Marketplace, The Funkie Money, Second Chance and Rookies Sports Bar.
