Merry Christmas!!! I hope everyone is having a great holiday with their families and friends and are all set for celebrations! This past weekend, I myself relaxed with some family and watched the greatest Christmas movie of all time, Die Hard!! This coming week is a little slower than what we’ve come to expect around the city, but there are still some events going on that will keep you busy!
Theatre: On Friday, December 28th, Cinderella and the Ice Slipper starts at The Gladstone and runs until Sunday, January 6th. The Kanata Theatre continues it’s run of Madagascar: A Musical Adventure on from the 27th – the 30th of December. At the NAC on December 27th – 29th, you can catch the amazing Shen Yun – Experience a Divine Culture with four different show times.
Seasonal Activities: I’ve added a few new events to the ongoing Christmas events this week as there are more attractions that are designed to entertain the kiddies while off school. At the Canadian Museum of Science and Technology, you can experience the excitement each day throughout the holidays starting on December 26th and running right through until January 6th with their Holiday Programming. At the Canadian Food and Agriculture Museum, you can also find some holiday family fun at Winter Frolic from December 26th to January 6th. The Magic of Lights continues each night at Wesley Clover Park, and you must buy your tickets in advance. Or, Parliament Hill continues it’s Christmas Lights Across Canada free show each night. On Thursday the 27th, you can take part in a family Glow Skate at TD Place at 10:30am. Finally, for the adults, House of TARG is putting on a Free-Play night on Boxing day.
My top three events of the week:
- Rooftop Beats and Brunch (Sunday, Andaz Hotel)
- Nature Nocturne: White Out (Friday, Canadian Museum of Nature)
- Hip Hop Karaoke (Sunday, Queen Street Fare) **Note that this is at the new location and looks amazing. I have yet to see the Queen Street Fare, but from what I’ve read, it looks like a great establishment!!!
