Thank You 



City of Christmas    Open Thanksgiving thru Christmas Welcome to the City of Christmas in Keokuk's Rand Park. As you stroll through Rand Park, you will view well over 300,000 beautifully arranged Christmas lights and 100 delightful displays. Keokuk's City of Christmas began in 1989 when dreams became a reality and Toyland, Santa's Barn complete with reindeer and elves, Santa's Workshop, a Nativity scene, and the International Christmas Display all appeared in Rand Park for the month of December. Public reaction was outstanding and a holiday tradition began. Over a decade of memories have been shared by visitors to the City of Christmas, with totals of over 20,000 vehicles passing through Rand Park each year. All of the displays are original and created by local citizens with many hours devoted to construction, decoration and upkeep and totally funded by donations. Jim Shuman, coordinator of these activities is the recipient of the distinguished 2005 Spirit of Keokuk Award because of his efforts. The City of Christmas is a non-profit corporation staffed by volunteers. As you journey where visitors from all over the world have toured, we hope you feel the Spirit of the Holiday Season!
