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: “An Andy & Bing Christmas”
The music of Andy Williams and Bing Crosby come to life this week at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres. Twin Cities musician Mick Sterling pairs with an unlikely vocalist, former NFL player and Hastings native Ben Utecht (trust me, he has a great voice). You’ll hear the classics “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” “White Christmas” and “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas.” Shows run today through December 31 at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres. The guys also perform this concert with a 60-piece orchestra on Sunday, December 17 in Burnsville.
