Let me first say that I am no way trying to rush the holidays with this list of Holiday and Christmas Events in Council Bluffs. I was actually excited when I heard that Target was holding back and giving Thanksgiving it’s time to shine. That being said, I started seeing some events show up on my Facebook feed and wanted to begin gathering them for the weeks ahead. Much more will be added so keep this post bookmarked for all your holiday fun in Council Bluffs!
