North Main Street was a very busy place on Saturday, Dec. 8, where Living Windows were just a part of the events planned for Hannibal’s Hometown Christmas.
Among the Living Windows, perhaps the ones drawing the most chuckles were at Miss Trindy’s Main Street Boutique, where a group portrayed the Griswold family in the National Lampoon’s “Christmas Vacation” movie.
In one window, Dan Whelan was Cousin Eddie, and the other window was the rest of the group around a dining table. They were Rex Hicks, Lesley Hicks, Latrinda Taylor, Brent Taylor, Jeff Riley and Amy Riley.
At the Alliance Art Gallery, while people attended the Second Saturday Gallery Night events, Ann Titus worked in a window, making miniatures of ribbons and wraps. Titus, an artist, said she was an elf.
At St. Petersburg Mercantile, mother and daughter Heather and Maryn McGuire were rocking in a window.
Across North Main Street, four pageant queens were singing Christmas carols outside Danni Nicole’s shop. They were Miss Hannibal Teen Destiny Reed, Junior Miss Hannibal Taylor Blackwell, Miss Hannibal Hanna Runyon and Miss Mark Twain Maggie Rowland.
Nearby the Native American store featured young Bryce Cummins in a window.
At the Chocolaterie Stam, the window showcased Shenea Tatman reading to her 1-year-old daughter, Valle,
Next door, at Picture Perfect, Santa and Mrs. Claus were busy waving to everyone on the street.
At the Mark Twain Museum, Chuck and Connie Brock were busy feeding several dogs.
In the second block of North Main Street, the Powder Room had two Living Windows displays. One featured Kyle and Amelia DeLaPorte in their wedding attire. She said she was glad to have an occasion to wear her wedding gown again.
The opposite window had two ladies, Ashley Means and Lesley Dehner, in a snow scene.
Some entertainment was on the street, such as Elvis impersonator Hank Abell dressed in white as he played his guitar and sang outside the Nancy Lee Kaufman Gallery.
