Frozen Friday

Sure, let’s show the rest of the world just how truly nuts we are here in Minnesota; go jump in a hole cut into a frozen lake. Then, tell everyone how fun it is. Really, this event is a hoot (to watch, at least for me), so even if you don’t want to take the plunge, at least show up to cheer on those that do. Register online to plunge at reg.plungemn.org. To spectate, head to Thomas Beach at Lake Calhoun, 3700 Thomas Ave. S in Minneapolis.

There will be fireworks to wrap up the fun at 7 p.m. at Lake Calhoun.

Visit Santa at Stillwater's Historic Courthouse

Stillwater's Historic CourthouseThe local shopping mall is not the only place to bring your kids to see Santa Claus this year. While this may be the easiest avenue, some may be looking for a more creative and festive way to bring their kids to Santa. There isn’t a whole lot of holiday spirit at the mall outside of encouraging people to buy, buy, buy.

The Historic Courthouse in Stillwater might be your alternative route to share Santa with your children. On Sunday, December 16th, the courthouse is celebrating Christmas by inviting Santa, a family holiday sing-a-long, and refreshments. All of this will be taking place at the beautifully decorated courthouse; if you can’t get into the holiday spirit while hanging out here, you may need to check your pulse.

Local entertainer Karen Hillman will be leading the family holiday sing-a-long with her guitar at 2:15 p.m. Don’t know the words to the traditional holiday songs? No problem. Song books will be passed out so you and your kids can follow along. After that, at 2:45 p.m., Santa will be making a visit to hear all of those "good" boys and girls' Christmas wishes. Photo opportunities will be available on Santa’s lap, but without the cost of the mall photographer...
