Do editor Heather Henley joins Renee LaSalle and Kim Gusby on WSAV's "The Bridge" to preview the best the weekend has to offer. Read more in Renee's weekly column.

First, we take a look at our cover story, the annual SkateFest at Savannah Civic Center. Although this season's schedule was shortened after Hurricane Matthew, nothing can stop this 44-year-old local tradition. You can strap on your skates during multiple sessions from Dec. 16-Jan. 1. Get all the details here. 

You can catch a talented hometown musician in a rare Savannah concert on Dec. 17 at Southbound Brewing. This one-man-band uses a looping style to create his own unique sound. Read our interview here. 

Find your antlers before the morning of Dec. 17, when you'll want to bring the family out for the seventh annual Reindeer Run. Proceeds help the Rape Crisis Center of the Coastal Empire continue its sexual violence prevention education in local schools, along with other community outreach programs. Learn more here. 

Take part in a rap battle for a good cause on Dec. 17 at Oglethorpe Mall as Greenbriar Children's Center hosts its wRap-Off. Local celebs and other participants will offer a holiday-themed rap to raise funds for the center, which provides runaway support, early childhood education and much more. While you're there, you can also get some presents wrapped at the center's gift wrap station. Learn more about the event here. 

Dec. 17 also brings the annual Twelve Bars of Christmas Bar Crawl in downtown Savannah. Be sure to get dressed up in costume, and you can even bring some small gifts to hand out to passersby along the way. We've got all the info here. 

Look for Heather's weekend preview on "The Bridge" from 11 a.m.-noon every Wednesday on WSAV-TV or catch the live stream.
