When you've finished hanging your holiday lights, you'll find plenty of great activities to do this weekend. Before Christmas comes another celebration: the winter solstice. In Woods Hole this weekend, the Solstice Singers perform holiday music in their lively Renaissance style. Also this weekend, in Dennis, a live crèche and candlelight walk happens on Saturday. Fans of Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion may want to head to Highfield Hall in Falmouth for Around the Fireplace: A Stay-at-Home Holiday, which offers music, skits, as well as warm cider and cookies. Looking ahead: a trio of local actors who created their own musical revue -- "Mama and Her Boys" -- previewing a sequel for one night in Falmouth, and it's got a holiday theme.
If good things to do were presents under the tree, we would have a mountain of fun packages to open. The busy holiday season continues with three fun dance programs this weekend. The eighth annual Dancing for a Cure raises money for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. The Atlantic Coast Academy of Dance is putting on the holiday program, Coppelia.
Santa must be mopping his brow, wondering how he's going to do it. He's got appearances scheduled at holiday events across the Cape and Islands this weekend - plus he has to keep his eye on the big day, less than 3 weeks off. Lots to do!
