The markets are starting to wind down, while the celebrations ramp up. On the weekend before Xmas, there’s plenty of chances to party in bars and on the streets. And take a moment to give back.
This weekend, enjoy three events with Charm City Books. Take some Holiday Portraits in a winter wonderland with Mike Jon on Saturday, 12/14. Enjoy Rapunzel – a one woman madcap puppet show on Sunday morning, 12/15. To end your weekend, join Charm City Books on Sunday, 12/15, for a festive evening of Holiday Chamber Music. Whether you attend one or all three, Charm City Books has your weekend covered.
Holidays are fast approaching, but there’s still some room to indulge amid the bustle. This weekend brings gatherings and music alongside a healthy helping of markets. Plus, a pair of notable local shops celebrate one year.
Deck the halls at The Shops at Kenilworth this month during their Holiday Sip & Shop on Thursday, December 19. Enjoy complimentary valet, a glass of bubbly and special offers. Check off that list with in-store offers. Plus, the first 50 guests to spend $50 between 5pm-8pm will receive a swag bag! Nothing says holidays like an evening of shopping, indulging and a little FaLaLa-ing. For more details, click here.

On Sunday, Santa and a few friends–a group that included marching bands, Shriner cars and dogs on skateboards–rolled and strolled down Falls Road and onto 36th Street in Hampden as part of the Annual Mayor’s Christmas Parade.
Crowds lined the streets on a mild winter today to watch the procession. Check out our photos.
