There are four parties total: two on Tuesday and two on Wednesday.

At Tuesday's parties, kids got to enjoy as much pizza and ice cream as possible. They also got to take part in a dance party with Happy the dog, and of course got to see Santa.

Happy Joe's is expecting to host around 1400 kids at the parties, which are held at the Taxslayer Center in Moline.

This is the first Holiday Party held without Happy Joe Whitty, who passed away in late October.
