With the leaves falling and the coolness in the air, Metropolis businesses are ready to kick off the holiday season with their annual Christmas Open House, scheduled for Sunday.
Participating merchants will bring in the holiday shopping season with in-store specials and refreshments.
Hours will vary, but many stores throughout town will be open from noon until 5 p.m.
Some stores will have door prize drawings.
