Are We There Yet?
With the holidays approaching, there's almost too much to do this weekend! Pick your favorites from this list of Christmas parades, seasonal performances and Santa events, in Champaign, Tuscola, Monticello, LeRoy and more.
We've even mixed in a few non-holiday events, for good measure!
In honor of the four-day holiday (for kids, at least), here’s an early look at the weekend festivities. Not sure what to do with the kids/relatives all weekend? Work off those calories with the Turkey Trot or some ice-skating, or visit a kid-friendly exhibit on ancient Egypt. And Santa arrives Saturday in Urbana!
This year’s gift guide from the University of Illinois Center for Children’s Books contains 90 top-quality picture books, from holiday adventures to the story of a (very) young budding journalist.
Christmas decorations are starting to pop up, Santa is coming, and holiday parades are happenin' all around the area this weekend. Not quite ready for the holidays? How about a steel drum concert or a children's production of "Music Man"? Check it out!
We have an eclectic mix for you this weekend, whether you're in an outdoorsy, environmental mood or just have that holiday spirit! Not to mention a puppet show, the Harlem Wizards and National Gaming Day. Enjoy!
Didn't we just put the pumpkins away? Maybe, but it's already beginning to feel a bit like Christmas around here - or at least Thanksgiving. Kick off the next holiday season by helping fight hunger at Lincoln Square this weekend, or shop early for Christmas and Hannukah gifts!
