Celebrate the holidays near RidgeWood West

The holidays are all about spending time with your friends and family. It’s when our dark winter nights are transformed into a winter wonderland with colourful lights, cheerful music and plenty of festivities – no wonder it’s called the most wonderful time of the year!

Make the most of this holiday season by visiting these nearby activities:

Holidays at the zoo

On December 15, from 9-11 a.m. have breakfast at the Tundra Grill in Assiniboine Park Zoo. There will be animal care professionals who will be talking about polar bears while you and your family are enjoying your meals.

Between December 21 and January 4, children under the age of 12 receive free zoo admission. This is a great opportunity to view the seals and polar bears in the Journey to Churchill exhibit and to go for a sleigh ride.

Immerse yourself in a magically lit polar town until January 5, at Assiniboine Park Zoo. Zoo Lights Festival is presented by Red River Co-op; enjoy dazzling light displays, music, art, culture and community.

Easton’s fairytale vignettes

The Office Christmas trivia

Get ready to test your knowledge about The Office on December 4, from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. Hosted by The Canadian Brewhouse, there will be 50 questions and five rounds of The Office trivia based on the Christmas episodes of the show. There will be hundreds of dollars in prizes for the top three teams and door prizes to be won throughout the night.

Stay in

If you’re looking for some low-key activities to enjoy in the warmth of your own home this holiday season, invite your loved ones over to create DIY wreaths, bake cookies or enjoy an ugly sweater party. You really can’t go wrong when choosing activities; as long as you’ve got the holiday spirit in your heart.
