MARYVILLE, Mo. — With the holiday season just around the corner, businesses and organizations in Maryville are preparing for holiday-themed events and focusing on encouraging people to shop local.

Downtown Maryville, the Greater Maryville Chamber of Commerce, Nodaway County Economic Development, Maryville Tourism and Make It Maryville are partnering together to help bring the holiday season to life by lighting up the downtown area, sponsoring pop-up shops filling local buildings, bringing Santa, the Grinch and more.
