Sure, we’re halfway through November, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use a few ideas for where to go for fun throughout the rest of the month. We’re ramping up the holidays season so many events coming up this month are holiday-themed, but not all.
Holiday Concert in Blaine
This one isn’t until December 1, but we wanted to give you a heads up about it so you can make plans to attend this free event for the whole family. Get to Blaine City Hall’s Atrium by 7 p.m. and plan on staying for about an hour to enjoy the Lake City Chorus of Sweet Adelines joined by the North Star Men’s Chorus. Coffee and cookies will be available. City Hall is located at 10801 Town Square Drive Northeast in Blaine.

Get on out to the Xcel Energy Center to cheer on our hometown heroes as they take on the Predators (November 21), Canucks (November 25), Jets (November 27) and the Stars (November 28). All games start at 7:00 p.m. with the exception of the Canucks game (6:00 p.m.) and the Jets game, which will be held at 3:00. Get tickets online here.

Can we interest the kids in a streetcar ride with the jolly old elf himself? It’s a 15-minute ride on the holiday-bedecked Como-Harriet Streetcar Line in Minneapolis that your kids will be sure to remember for a lifetime. Admission is $4 per passenger and you don’t need to pre-purchase or make reservations. They do ask that you bring a new, unwrapped toy for the Toys for Tots program.
