Almost everybody’s seen Christmas cards, but not like the ones on display tonight in the northern Iowa town of Algona. The annual display of “living” Christmas cards will be opening about 6:30 in dozens of windows around the State Street and Plaza business districts.Vicki Mallory is executive director of the Algona Chamber of Commerce. She says the people in the windows will be acting out scenes from a variety of traditional holiday cards.Mallory says the living cards won’t be the only attraction in Algona tonight, they have horse-drawn wagon rides and Christmas Carolers.The displays will come to life from 6:30 to 8:30 tonight only. There’s also an event earlier called Tacos for Tots. That begins at 5 p-m, selling the Mexican food items to raise money for needy families throughout Kossuth County.
