Christmas Lights, Holiday Events, Santa Claus Parades and More November and December 2021 Happenings and Stuff to Do


As always, we suggest you go through the links now, as some activities require you to pre-register, and often the info will change without our knowledge.

If you are new to our list, the top part is ongoing activities and the eBlast portion further down has date-specific events.  We have a great mix of outdoor and online suggestions for you.


Looking for new things to do with your child? Do you think your child would enjoy participating in science? If your child is between the ages of 3-7, they are eligible to sign-up for an online study with researchers at the University of Waterloo. Participation is free and the studies are quite fun for children! Children get a certificate at the end and a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card. A typical session involves a 25-minute Zoom video call with their researchers. If you would like to sign-up, please visit If you have any questions, please email

  3. Hi viewers online, I'm Suzanne Gratton from the US. I'm here to share my testimony about how I helped to get my husband back. I was a cheat and my husband caught me several times. I tried fixing myself and each time I ended up cheating over and over again. I guess I didn't realize what he meant to me until he had left me alone. I began to find a way to get him back but nothing seemed to work out perfectly until I came across an article about DR PATRICK who helped a lot of people globally to get their relationships back. I made contact with him and he assured me that my husband will come back to me within 48 hours with his powerful magic and I paid 410 dollars for the materials needed for the work. Surprisingly, my husband came back home after 2 days saying that he still loves me and I swore never to cheat on him anymore. All thanks to DR PATRICK. You can have a chat with him on his WhatsApp number +1 662 493 2087 or you can contact him on Email and here is facebook page and his blob
