We hope you've kept your calendar clear for this weekend (except for maybe this). There are so many terrific events happening that you could fill a month of weekends! And it's not just holiday fare, we've got cultural celebrations, mariachi music, free jazz, women shredding it in sports and so much more. Read on and have fun.

Our guide to holiday happy hours for families delivers dinner plus cheer. Take advantage of winter break to get gliding on one of these seasonal skating rinks; they won't be around forever. Stop by to see an epic light show programmed to music, designed by a Seattle teen, or peruse our list of best holiday light displays. (We've got the inside scoop on the Lantern Light Festival at the Puyallup fairgrounds, too.) Get a dose of holiday cheer on the cheap if you haven't yet; our list tells you where.  And don't miss our full family fun calendar for more great activities every day of the week.
