If you have not been to the new Dutch General Store in Hannibal you’re missing out. This is such a fun store to be in, from toys, to candy, and free ice cream, there is something for everyone in the family to enjoy. This weekend (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) they are having their grand opening celebration.

There will be live music, free ice cream, free samples, and free Hersey's Honey Sticks (I am curious as to what those are). Plus, all three days the Hannibal Trolley Rides will be free starting at 9:30 and running until 4 pm. There will be a coloring contest, doorbuster deals all weekend, and an instore Piper's Candy Demo.

Seems like it’s going to be a fun weekend at the general store, so if you have nothing to do, head to Hannibal and enjoy not only the grand opening events, but just Hannibal in general. Weather is going to be perfect this weekend to get out and enjoy it.

I've been in the Dutch General Store and the candy selection they have it the best in the Tri-States, and the homemade goods and jams, you can go pretty crazy in the store. For more information about the grand opening weekend, follow the Dutch General Store on Facebook.
