You’ve heard the big news… Stovehouse is opening a new venue, The Electric Belle. We’ve got even better news for you. The first event is Thursday, December 16.

You can expect a Christmas concert with all of your favorite Motown hits and plenty of festive drinks (for those 21 and up, of course).

2. Children’s Holiday Party

Here’s an event just for the kids. Growing up, Christmas books read to me by my parents were my favorite holiday tradition. There will be snacks, a food decorating contest, holiday-themed games and a book exchange.

Bring a wrapped children’s book to the holiday party. Wrapping paper will be there, just in case.

3. Holidays in your PJs

If you haven’t heard of Merrimack Hall, you’ll want to know all the deets. Merrimack Hall is a performing arts program for children and adults with a variety of special needs.

I was lucky enough to attend their performance of The Christmas Story and can’t wait for their next show!

You can hear all your holiday faves at a concert on December 17. Their holiday concert will also pay tribute to a beloved member of the Merrimack Hall family who passed away this year, Bradley Block.

4. Holiday Light Show

Holiday shopping can be a pain. What if we told you that you could enjoy a light show while you finish up that last minute shopping? Bridge Street has a large Christmas tree by Cinemark. Trust me, you won’t want to miss it.

Each light show lasts 10 minutes and is exciting for all ages.

5. SantaCon 2021
