If you have relatives in town for the holidays, there's plenty of family-friendly fun going on in Savannah this weekend!
There are still several chances to check out Skatefest, the popular annual event that turns the Civic Center into an ice skating rink.
Children will also enjoy a workshop and show hosted by Angela Beasley's Puppet People. They'll even get the chance to perform with their creations, which they can take home afterward.
There is still plenty of time to join in the festivities at the Savannah Harbor Festival of Lights. Besides plenty of lighted displays, there are also animal shows, musical entertainment and more.
If history's your thing, the Davenport House will offer a glimpse into holidays in the 1820s with their Holiday Evening Tours by Candlelight. Also, two tour companies have teamed up to offer A Charles Dickens Savannah Victorian Christmas Walk, featuring carols and live performances.
If you aren't afraid of the dark, Bonaventure Cemetery is still scheduling after-hours tours, and it's a rare chance to see the historic location after the sun goes down.
For the movie buffs in the family, Muse Arts Warehouse presents a critically acclaimed foreign drama, "The Broken Circle Breakdown." There are two chances to see this film, described by the New York Post as "an alternately wrenching and ecstatic viewing experience."
And, as always, there is no shortage of shows available for music lovers in Savannah. Friday brings Cranford Hollow and what they describe as "Lowcountry stomp" to Wild Wing CafÃ©. Saturday offers your choice of Niche, Tonto and Rotten Blush at The Jinx or Lovely Locks and Powerkompany at Hang Fire. Read more about these bands from Unplugged columnist Bill Dawers to make up your mind.
