Christmas over Route 66 Cuba, Missouri
For the second year, Viva Cuba is offering our nostalgic Christmas over Route 66 Cuba, Missouri print. The print was warmly received last year, and Cuba citizens and collectors purchased many prints as gifts and for their homes.
You can frame the print to match your decor.
Last year the original Ray Harvey painting was on display in Peoples Bank. But for only $20, prints can be purchased at the Hwy. 19 Peoples Bank. You can order the print online here for $20. and a small shipping fee. Our elves are standing by to get your print in the mail for you.
Wherever you are, keep a little piece of a Cuba Christmas next to your heart.
