Don't have any plans for this weekend yet? Don't worry - Patch has you covered. Here are the top five best bets for the weekend ahead.
Boys Basketball: Lake Forest vs Warren Township: The LFHS boys basketball game against the Warren Blue Devils is the CN100 Game of the Week, so come route on the home team! Friday, Dec. 14, 7:30 p.m., Warren High School.
LFDA Extrava-Dance-A: The Lake Forest Dance Academy will be kicking off the holidays this Saturday – literally. Their holiday performance features a Rockette kick-line, “Rockin’ Santas” and the very special debut of the LFDA Pom Force Dance Team. And don’t forget to check out the bake sale and gingerbread house raffle in addition to the performance! Saturday, Dec. 15, 4 p.m., Lake Forest Dance Academy, $5.
Live Nativity: The first live nativity scene is credited to St. Francis in the 13th century. Stop by St. Patrick’s Catholic Church to get Lake Forest’s take on the live scene, featuring live actors and animals – and the cookies and hot cocoa. Saturday, Dec. 15, 5:45 p.m., St. Patrick Catholic Church, Free.
Stirling Hall Art Center Holiday Sale: With the holiday season in full swing, stop by the Stirling Hall Annual Holiday Art Sale to check off gifts for everybody on your list. There are a variety of different items to choose from, ranging from ceramics to jewelry to mosaics. Saturday, Dec. 15, 10 a.m., Stirling Hall Art Center, Free.
Holidays in Market Square: While we may still be dreaming of a White Christmas, the North Pole is still closer than you could imagine – specifically, in Market Square! Come visit Santa at Baytree Bank this Saturday and say hello to the reindeer in Market Square. Then on Sunday, stop in the square for a free horse and carriage ride! While you may be dashing through the grass instead of the snow, it’s a sure bet that you’ll still be making some great holiday memories. Saturday, Dec. 15, 10 a.m., Market Square, Free.
