Christmas Open House at River City Sweet Shop
We’ve been making our rounds with all the Christmas and holiday events, but they’ve mostly been centered around adults or families. It was time to do something for the kids, and that’s when we dropped by River City Sweet Shop for their Christmas Open House event.
We have a bit of a sweet spot, literally and figuratively, for River City Sweet Shop as they’ve done a couple of cakes for our daughter’s birthday over the years. Recently, the bakery moved to 2401 W. 13th St. And they also hosted a big Christmas Open House that was free to the public.
This event had it all. My daughter was joined by her bestie for an afternoon of fun, and the festivities at River City Sweet Shop started with a meet and greet with Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Mickey kind of got the cold shoulder and the girls were more enamored with Minnie.
They also got to enjoy free cookie decorating and ornament making. The staff was very hands-on with all the kids and making sure everyone had a great time.
A complimentary hot cocoa bar along with catering from Fusion Restaurant was available.
This was an event that really packed the place, and I’m hoping introduced many new people to River City Sweet Shop.
River City Sweet Shop had drawings every 15 minutes and 20% off everything in the store.
When it comes to these free events, I feel it’s important to at least make some purchases and support the place.
So I purchased a dozen cake balls for my family…
… and during my order, I was coerced by my daughter to pick up a cookie for her and her bestie. How could I say no to these faces?
With the Christmas Open House event aside, I highly recommend the bakery. I’ve used them for events, purchased multiple desserts over the years and highly recommend them. These events are just the icing on the cake, and you’ll want to follow them on Facebook to learn about other things they do.
