Let the Holidays Begin

It's a great weekend in Billings for kicking off the Holidays. If you've got friends and family in town, there's plenty to keep them entertained.

Of course, today is Black Friday so you can spend some time catching some great deals at Rimrock Mall, at the fine shops in Downtown Billings and throughout the city. With Billings being the retail capital for the area, the town is sure to be buzzing with busy shoppers.

Tonight is the Holiday Parade in Downtown Billings. Should be a fun event to take your out of town visitors to.

At the Alberta Bair Theater tonight and tomorrow night is The Nutcracker Ballet with the Billings Symphony.

Peter Pan is playing at Billings Studio Theatre and Willy Wonka is at Venture Theatre. While these two productions aren't necessarily Holiday themed, they've got that element of nostalgia that is just perfect for this time of year.

The Billings Bulls Hockey team is taking on Missoula this Sunday at the Centennial Ice Arena.

There's live music around town, comedy and more. Often, I think visitors come to Billings and don't even realize all of the entertainment available to them. Why not show your guests that our city has more to offer.

Whatever you decide to do, have a great Holiday weekend!
