This would have been really fun, but its going to be cold out. So Stillwater’s Annual Twinkle Parade is now NEXT SUNDAY! However, if you are interested in going next Sunday you will want to meet at the Dock Cafe at 4PM. This is a parade you march in, not one you watch, so skip the blankets and pillows for sitting on and wear comfortable marching attire, instead. Before the parade, you can enjoy a performance by the Teddy Bear Band performing before everyone marches in the parade along the river to the Lowell Park Gazebo; and afterwards watch the tree lighting ceremony featuring Santa’s arrival on a fire truck, followed by fireworks.
The best part!!! Free hot chocolate, cider, cookies and twinkle lights!
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever SteppingStone Theatre 55 Victoria Street North Saint Paul, MN 55104 Saturday, December 7, 2013 at 4:00 p.m. Thursday, December 12, 2013 at 7:00 pm.
Saturday is the first of TWO Pay What You Can Performances at SteppingStone Theatre. This was one of my favorite books and TV specials when I was a kid. I am excited to share it with my kids in a new format. Since this is a book about a play, I can only imagine it translates well to stage.
I always have a hard time finding the information on Pay What You Can Days on the SteppingStone website, so I’m giving you a link and quoting their information, here.
“The first Saturday of each production, we offer a “Pay What You Can Day.” On the day of the performance, tickets can be purchased in person at any price that suits you. We suggest a minimum of $5.00 per ticket, but the actual price you pay is your choice. Tickets are sold first-come-first-served, so we suggest arriving an hour or so before show time”
