Folks walking in downtown West Liberty heard Winter Blues Jazz during the Cabin Fever Family Outing on Feb. 17. Businesses were open late and offered snacks, drinks and other goodies. Each shop had different activities and freebies. Marie’s Candies passed out free Winter Blue Oreos to the first 175 people who visited the store. At MCC Thrift, patrons took a break from shopping and put a puzzle together. The Grove provided children’s activities while parents shopped downtown. It was a great day to get out of the house for a bit and shake off those winter blues.
