Christmas Still Lives in Prescott Featured

It’s Christmas in Prescott, despite COVID-19 lockdowns 

Big Idea

  • Parades have been officially cancelled
  • Acker Night is also cancelled
  • The Courthouse lighting will be virtual
  • But Shop with a Cop will continue
  •

Shop with a Cop will still take place in 2020

Parades have been officially cancelled. Acker Night won’t happen in 2020 for the first time since 1988. But there is one Prescott Christmas tradition that will still take place this year.

The annual Shop with a Cop will take place this year on December 12. But, it will look different, according to Prescott Police Lt. Jon Brambila. 

“We are still having this event but it will be very different than years past,” Brambila explained. "We will have 3 separate groups of kids and officers at different times. There will be no lights and siren caravan. Masks will be worn as well.”

While kids will surely miss the sirens and lights, there are still many benefits associated with this amazing event. Having a positive encounter with a Law Enforcement officer is priceless; experiencing the joy of buying gifts for loved ones, which includes budgeting, of course. 

Here’s an update on other Christmas events around the Quad Cities area:

Prescott Christmas Parade - Cancelled

Christmas Tree Lighting at the Courthouse Plaza - Virtual 

Acker Night - Cancelled, but Raven Sound Studios will be live streaming local musicians on Acker Night, December 11.

Christmas lights around the City - they’re on! Bundle your kids up in the car, grab a thermos of hot cider or chocolate and take a family drive! How many can you find?

Boot Drop - TBD, Announcement made on or before December 21
