THE WEEKEND IS UPON US AND IT'S GETTING to look a lot like Christmas! Now, what to do with yourself? I've got a few suggestions. Hey I know, how about watching the Browns on Sunday? OK, stop laughing...
IF YOU HAVE NEVER VISITED STAN HYWET at Christmastime...do it!!! The holiday celebration is the best in town, both inside and outside the mansion. This years celebration is titled "Deck The Hall." Take the whole family.
THE TANGIER IS ALIVE WITH THE SOUND OF "The Scintas Christmas Show". This group can usually be found in Las Vegas but they have been coming to Akron for decades and we can't get enough of them. It's a three day run...Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Get tickets at www.thetangier.com.
PROBABLY THE BIGGEST ARTS & CRAFTS SHOW of the year takes place at EJ Thomas Hall at the University of Akron all weekend. Friday, Saturday and Sunday the 33rd annual "Christmas Arts & Crafts Show" will draw over 100 professional artists and craftspeople. Parking is free at all the decks and lots around the hall.
THE FUNNY STOP COMEDY CLUB in Cuyahoga Falls presents for two nights only, Dustin Diamond. Chances are you've seen him somewhere on television, but for 4 shows only see him live and in person! Two shows tonight and two more on Saturday. Get all the info on this and other upcoming shows at www.funnystop.com.
HOLIDAY FEST AT LOCK 3 PARK IN DOWNTOWN Akron continues all weekend. Archie The Snowman, sled riding, the Holiday market, ice skating and a magical train for kids are just a few of the activities the whole family will love. More info is available at www.lock3live.com.
WHILE STAN HYWET HAS A GREAT LIGHT SHOW, I can't forget about the holiday lights at Lake Anna in Barberton. The lights shine on weekends until 10pm and weeknights until 9pm.
