Every store and street corner is starting to look red, green and cheery, so if you need a break from the early holiday activities, don’t miss “Kuniko Magical Mask, Mime and Music of Japan,” a show that brings the Japanese culture to life with music, masks, origami and mime. It starts tonight at Y Stage and continues through to Sunday.

If you are in the holiday mood, The Calgary Zoo officially launches the annual winter festival Zoolights, with holiday light displays in the shapes of animals, hot chocolate and winter fun. In the same spirit, Spruce Meadows continues their International Christmas Market this weekend with 74 kilometres of light displays in addition to the more than 200 vendors inside.
