In 2017, there are exactly 40 days from Thanksgiving Day to New Years Day. And with the elimination of the eighth floor display at Macy’s in downtown Minneapolis and Holiday Lights in the Park in Saint Paul, along with the disappointing change from tradition at Holidazzle, more people than ever are looking for new holiday activities. Enter “40 Ways to Holiday.” Each day between November 23 and January 1 will have at least one event worth checking out, along with plenty of giveaways along the way! Find the full list of days here.
Featured pick: A Christmas Celebration with The Steeles
J.D., Fred, Jearlyn, Jevetta and Billy Steele are five siblings who make up The Steeles, an ensemble who have quite the resume. They’ve recorded and performed with Prince, Morgan Freeman, The Blind Boys of Alabama, the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and many others. I recently heard Jearlyn perform at a gala, and she blew everyone away, resulting in a standing ovation. Times Jearlyn’s power by five and you get this concert, which is bound to be a highlight of your holidays. Showtime tonight at the Fitzgerald Theater in Saint Paul is 7:30 p.m.
A Christmas Celebration with The Steeles
