AllAgesView – Happy Holidays

By Sofia Johnson
Happy holidays! I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving break. There is so much to look forward to this holiday season in the area. If you have not been to the Modesto on Ice rink yet, I highly recommend it, especially during the nighttime when the rink (literally) lights up! Now that Thanksgiving is over and we have said our thanks it is the perfect time to give back to those who are not as fortunate. The way my family does this is through Soroptimist. This organization allows you to pick a tag from the Christmas tree set up at Vintage Faire mall and buy gifts for a child who might not receive any gifts otherwise.

Some other favorite traditions of mine are Central West Ballet’s performance of the Nutcracker, which will take place at our lovely Gallo Center for the Arts, and the Celebration of Lights Parade followed by the Rockin’ Holiday tree lighting, both on December 1st in downtown Modesto. There will be live music and lots of local businesses participating, as should you! Modesto Hospice center will also being holding a Christmas tree lighting the following day at Memorial Medical Center. Still can’t get enough of all of these events? The State Theater will be holding a Warren Miller Film Tour on December 1st, Sinatra at the State on December 6th, and a poetry slam December 8th, as well as much more! Well, I hope you have lots of plans for the holidays and if you didn’t already, now you do!
