A quick reminder that there is no overnight parking on any city streets in Rexburg during the winter months.

The toy isle is experiencing traffic jams and we are loving it. One of the hardest challenges is getting these young shoppers to remember today is for them, they are always wanting to take care of everyone else first.

Walmart is ready, Santa is waiting, volunteers are all set to wrap gifts, Shop with a Cop is getting to the shopping part and we have some excited young shoppers.

McDonalds is about as full as it has ever been, were they giving free coffee and donuts? No, it’s Shop with a Cop and all these officers are donating their time to help bring Christmas to town.

Shop with a Cop has begun, so many happy faces of children and a little noise from sirens and sirens some amazing lights.
