The Weekend: December 30-January 1


The sun is setting on 2016, and we’ll be hitting the metaphorical refresh button when it rises on Sunday. So just like last weekend, I’m keeping this round-up simple as we emerge from the hoopla of the holidays (and the past year, for that matter) and possibly get into more as we welcome 2017. There are still some seasonal events going on and plenty of things to do around town, but not too many special one-time happenings aside from New Year’s activities, which we’ve got covered. Those along with these go-to posts will keep your crew entertained over the next few days. And be sure to follow KFDC on Facebook in case I share any last minute news. Happy Weekend and a very Happy New Year to all!
