There are always so many fun things to do around the Triangle during the holidays that I thought I would share a few of my top picks in the coming weeks. I am looking forward to kicking off the holiday season attending a couple of great shows at DPAC in early December including “A Magical Cirque Christmas” and the Irving Berlin classic “White Christmas“. There are several great events throughout the month of December to help you get into the Christmas spirit. In addition to those listed below I also recommend checking out the awesome Chinese Latern Festival at Koka Booth in Cary. It runs through January 12th and features larger-than-life holiday lanterns showcasing the beauty and artistry of Chinese Culture. Happy Holidays!
Here are my top Holiday Picks for 2019:
