What’s shakin’ this Saturday?? With only two more weekends to go before the big holiday there are still multitudes of sales and parties to be had. Here are some Durham events, you won’t want to miss! If you haven’t been to Fullsteam Brewing, you are in for a treat. The brewery provides a great atmosphere for those partaking in brews or not. The public open space is a great location to meet folks and practice holiday merriment.
A Very Merry Durham is a crazy fun filled holiday party hosted by Fullsteam Brewery in Durham on Dec. 15thfrom 6 to 8 pm.
There will be roving holiday carolers, a naughty or nice wheel (??!), appearances by the Holiday Gorilla, a very special Santa, the Poetry Fox, and live winter wonderland scene painting!
When the clock hits 8pm, a stage show produced and designed by the community’s beloved Erik Lars Myers begins. Expect a Seussian story line, Durham’s strangest and finest talent, and a “surprise” ending that will surprise no one!
And for those who want to party till’ the reindeer come home, we’ll have a post-show DJ set of cheesy Rat Pack Christmas music along with other fun 50s/60s holiday tunes. Kids are welcome for this rocking holiday party.
Following the craziness of the holiday party is a great shopping experience at A Very Merry Durham! Holiday Market!
