Are We There Yet?
Looking for some holiday cheer for you and your family? Here are a couple of ideas that couldn’t wait until this weekend.
Free children’s opera
The University of Illinois School of Music Opera Studio is staging several free performances of the Christmas classic, “Amahl and the Night Visitors.”
The winter school holiday break is approaching, which prompts two questions:
— What happened to November?
— What should we get the kids’ teachers this year?
Apple magnet? Nah, they probably have five. “World’s Greatest Teacher” ornament? Too many to count.
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!
