WHAT’S UP THIS WEEKEND
WATERLOO REGION — Holiday festivities in the region are in full swing, meaning there’s plenty to do in the region this weekend. Here’s a short list: Kitchener’s annual Christkindl Market starts Thursday and runs through the weekend. Expect more than 100 vendors, 30 live bands, choir and dance performances, a live nativity, horse-drawn carriage rides, a model railway, a puppet show, skating in Carl Zehr Square and more. For a detailed schedule visit: christkindl.ca.
Make your own holiday ornaments at Studio Central in the Kitchener Public Library. Learn how to create a simple LED light circuit and use a 3D printer to make a custom ornament. All ages are welcome and no registration is required.
Cambridge City Hall and Market Square will transform this weekend into a holiday market with a number of vendors, activities for the family, horse drawn trolley rides, and live performances by the Chartwell Bell Ringers, the Salvation Army, Addison Women’s Choir, and Penny and Pound Theatre. And on Sunday, bring your pets — on a leash for pet photos. For the schedule of events visit: cambridge.ca.
If you need an escape from holiday festivities this weekend, join The Dog Haus at Bechtel Park in Waterloo for a meditation walk with your canine pal. It’s a free event for dog-lovers who want to take a stroll together. Dogs must be on lashes — no retractable leashes — and no treats are allowed.
