What To Do This Weekend (and Beyond!)

So, yes, I do expect most of you will be opening Christmas presents, enjoying visits with friends and family and partaking in Seasonal Revelry! But, just on the off chance that you are looking for something to do in the next few days, or over Christmas Break, here's what is on around town:

  • Tomorrow, there is a free family skate, sponsored by the Foster Families Association in CBS (email for details), and a Christmas for the Kids fun night at Clay Cafe from 6-9 (cost is $10 and you must pre-register. Children will do crafts, have hot cocoa and watch a movie... you can wrap presents!)
  • Every Christmas, Tim Horton's sponsors Free Family Skates at Arenas across Canada. The participating Arenas and dates in the St. John's area are as follows:
    • CBS Stadium - Dec 31 - 5-7 PM
    • Goulds Arena - Dec 27 - 7-8:30 PM
    • Mile One Centre  - Dec 29 - 3-5 PM
    • Mt Pearl Glacier  - Dec 31 - 4-6 PM
    • Twin Rinks  - Dec 29 - 6-7 PM
  • Mount Pearl's Family First Night Celebrations will also be included at the skating event at the Glacier on the 31st. In addition to skating, the event will include non-alcoholic refreshments, New Years Party Favors, and entertainment with Magician Mark Bailey, and Music by Glen Harvey and Barry Kenny! Free, with non-perishable food items gratefully accepted at the door. 
  • Fireworks, as always at Quidi Vidi Lake on New Year's Eve, at  the strike of midnight :-) 
  • There are several children's movies playing: Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwreaked; Happy Feet Two; Hugo; The Adventures of Tintin; Arthur Christmas. For showtimes and details, Click Here.
