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.
Day 38: Saturday, December 30
Featured pick: Trans-Siberian Orchestra
For over 20 years, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra has made it a tradition to share holiday cheer on tour. Their rock opera music includes “O Come All Ye Faithful,” “Christmas Canon,” and plenty of the Orchestra’s greatest hits. The Orchestra has two shows today at the Xcel Energy Center in Downtown Saint Paul — 3:30 and 8:00 p.m. Tickets start at $36.
GIVEAWAY: I’m running a contest for a pair of tickets to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra for free! Enter here.
