August is officially here, which means school will be starting soon and summer is almost over. Here are some August events and activities in Randolph County that
you don’t want to miss.
Old fashioned candies and sweets galore are what are waiting to be discovered at the first highlighted business. Blissfully Yours, Sweet Shoppe and More just opened
in late July.
Their selection of items is very impressive. They have cheesecake, ice cream, jelly beans, fudge and old-fashioned candies just to name a few of their treats.
The most impressive aspect about this business is that the owner makes everything (except the Jelly Beans and pre-packaged candies) from scratch and the recipes are original. Find them on 619 Concanon Street in Moberly.
Hours: 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Phone: (660) 353-0756.
On August 18th don’t miss the "Taste of Missouri Wine Stroll" in Downtown Moberly. This event showcases Missouri wine, spirits and breweries from venues around the state of Missouri. Plus, it supports a fantastic cause: the Safe Passage domestic violence shelter that serves eight counties in the state of Missouri. Make a weekend of this event by dining and shopping with your favorite Downtown stores and restaurants.
