Aisle of Lights (JCHS Activities)

The Coralville Aisle of Lights is an annual winter event perfectly suited to the dreary weather. The brightly lit luminarias around the city give a warmth and friendliness in the cold. The JCHS will have crafts, baked goods, and hot cider for you and your family!

This event is free and open to the public.

The JCHS partners with the Antique Car Museum of Iowa to provide a reduced admission price for both museums on this special day.

The date of this event has not been announced. Stay tuned to this page or the City of Coralville’s website for more information.

This year’s annual tea party is a Czech Tea! Come to this annual event to eat traditional Czech food, drink hearty amounts of tea, and learn about Czechs in Iowa from our guest speaker Marybeth Slonneger.

Vocalist Wayne Neuzil, who has sung in 34 operatic roles and has gained recognition for singing the national anthem for major league baseball clubs, including the New York Yankees and the Cubs, will sing two songs that have been translated into Czech.
