Things To Do Around The Capital Region This Holiday Season

MacFawn Fire & Flood Restoration - Friday, December 18, 2015

There is lots to do and see this holiday season in the Albany area and all around the Capital Region! A personal favorite for holiday cheer and historic landmark in Albany, is the Palace Theatre. Tonight, the Palace will screen the Christmas favorite, 'It's a Wonderful Life.' Tickets for films at the Palace Theatre for adults is $5 and for children, $3.

Also performing this evening, December 18th 2015, is Disney on Ice at the Times Union Center in Albany. And if you are a fan of the full Christmas Story experience on the holidays, you can enjoy a special stage performance at the Capital Rep Theatre this evening only!

Tomorrow, Sunday and Monday evening, watch as the stage comes to life for A Charlie Brown Christmas special, a rendition hosted by Albany's own Park Playhouse. If you are closer to Schenectady, you can also enjoy a special stage performance of A White Christmas at Proctors Theatre downtown; another amazing historic landmark.  Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your relationship with snow) it doesn't look like we will have a white Christmas here in the Capital Region with the 60 degree forecast ahead, but Proctors will make a White Christmas possible after all!

Finally, if you haven't made your New Year's Eve plans, now's the time to start planning. We have First Night in Saratoga and lots to do in Albany this year! Moe is coming back for another encore NYE performance for all yee jamband fanatics if First Night doesn't strike you as something you'd like. MiSci is hosting a special Noon Year's Eve for a special child friendly New Year's Eve celebration of the New Year at 12:00 PM at their site in the RPI Tech Park.
