Five Things for Today: December 16, 2020

An IRL Step Afrika! show from a holiday season past


1. Since they can’t perform in person this year, Step Afrika! is presenting their annual Magical Musical Holiday Step Show virtually this evening at 7:30pm on Facebook and YouTube — for free!  This is one of our favorite holiday shows, and I highly recommend watching if you’ve never seen it before (or even if you have).  Register in advance here.


2. Registration is open for DC Department of Parks and Rec’s Winter Programs.  They will be taking all the fun of their live, in-person programs and bringing it straight to your living room. Find all kinds of activities for everyone, kids and adults.  Sessions begin Monday, January 4, 2021.


3. Outdoor ice skating is still an option for recreation this season, as many area rinks have opened with new safety measures in place for covid, including advanced reservations required.  The round-up of places to skate under the sky has been updated to reflect the current status of all of them, even rinks that are closed.


4. 40 under-the-radar movies to watch with kids.


5. Not warm and fuzzy, but a powerful, moving read.


PS:  If it turns out to be more rain than snow today, and you’re stuck inside, take advantage of the time to do some holiday shopping — the KFDC Holiday Gift Guide has loads of ideas to help with that!
