That holiday feeling is in the air again, which means there’s a lot to do this weekend.

You might want to take out-of-town guests to a performance or enjoy a day on the ranch. Maybe you really want to get some holiday shopping done from the many fairs and shopping events or take the kids to meet their favorite children’s author at her book signing event.

With so many great choices of fun things to do, it might be hard to choose. But don’t worry; we’ve put together a great list to help you decide.  Don’t forget to check out our holiday guides, too!

Thanksgiving guests will be arriving soon and the holiday shopping season officially starts next week. That probably means there’s a lot on that to-do list. But don’t worry, we have a fantastic lineup that will not only help you relax and enjoy time indoors and out this weekend, but you can even check some of that shopping off your list, too.

We have a little bit of everything on our list with holiday boutiques, workshops, performances, and even an anniversary celebration of a favorite historic lighthouse.

Some brand new events will hit the scene this weekend such as holiday ice skating at the Boardwalk, a hot dog eating contest and a newly crafted local root beer making its debut.

There is also a paddle out to clean up our important waterways, one of the most popular vintage and antique fairs around, and plenty of unique performances and presentations that will appeal to any style.
