Eastern Iowa Weekender

It’s the first weekend of December and there’s much to do here in Eastern Iowa to get you in the holiday spirit! The Englert and Nolte Academy have their annual performances of the Nutcracker this weekend, and in Cedar Rapids, the National Czech & Slovak Museum’s Old World Christmas Market is also happening on Saturday and Sunday. Top pick? Iowa City Public Library’s Arts & Crafts Bazaar on Saturday — one-a-kind gifts all donated by local artists. All proceeds go to the ICPL Friends Foundation.
