ThisisBoise.com has all of this week’s best events from Tubing to the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl… not to mention a Christmas Day visit from Santa Claus. We hope to see you out in our "treasured valley" spreading holiday cheer over this winter break.
For the Family:
Santa Visits Brundage and the Activity Barn
What does Santa like to do after delivering all those toys? Hit the slopes of course! We have just confirmed that Santa Claus will be spreading holiday cheer from 10 am – noon Christmas day at Brundage. Then from 1 – 3 pm, head downtown to the Activity Barn for tubing and photos in his sleigh. Look for his friend Bruno, the Brundage Bear, to make an appearance, too! For more info go here.
Treasure Valley Children’s Theater presents Little Women. In this affecting, delightful adaptation of Alcott's classic novel, the four spirited March sisters – Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy – endeavor to sustain their family in the absence of their father, who is away fighting the Civil War. Led by their devoted Marmee and accompanied by music from the period, each girl struggles to overcome her own limitations to become the best version of herself, even in the midst of disease, jealousy, and poverty.
Appropriate for ages 8+ (very mild language, more mature content dealing with love, loss and family issues)
SHOW DATES: Saturday December 24, 11am & 3pm
LOCATION: 703 N. Main St., Meridian
