We are proud to support the annual "Light Up Your Night" drive-thru Christmas display event as patrons are actively encouraged to tour free of charge at 5710 Gibson Dr. NE, and make 104.5 KDAT, Eastern Iowa's Christmas Station, their soundtrack through the array of sparkling lights and sights. Due to high wind and other dangerous weather predicted in the forecast, this event has been postponed. Originally scheduled from 5-6 p.m. on Wednesday, December 15, it has been rescheduled for next Wednesday, December 22 from 5-6 p.m. Stop by and enjoy a warm cup of hot chocolate and Christmas refreshments to-go.

For more information on this drive-through holiday spectacular, feel free to call Chris Ruzicka at (319)775-3436.
