Top Things To Do This Weekend, December 8, 2010

This weekend in Santa Clarita brought to you by our friends at Valencia Auto Center

Canyon Theatre Guild-A Christmas Carol
Edwards Theatres-Chronicles of Narnia
Performing Arts Center-Festival Navidad
Compassionate Friends Candle Lighting
OLPH-A Night of Christmas Carols

Canyon Theatre Guild-A Christmas Carol
It’s all about spirits at Canyon Theatre Guild.  Their Christmas Carol spirits are all about getting your spirit into the holiday spirit.  You may know this classic very well, or you may be introducing it to a child for the first time.  Either way, A Christmas Carol will charm you and enrich your holidays.  Performances run through December 19.

Edwards Theatres-Chronicles of Narnia
The world of Narnia is here again to capture our imaginations with ‘The Voyage of the Dawn Treader’.  The sequel in the Chronicles of Narnia series opens on Friday at Ewards Theatres.  This mystical world will sweep you away from any stresses of the holidays.  This time around the movie is in 3D.  On Saturday, there will be celebration games, raffles, contests with prizes and more.  Join in the fun at Edwards Valencia from 11am-3pm and the Edwards Canyon Country from 1-5pm.  Click here to win a pair of tickets.

Performing Arts Center-Festival Navidad
College of the Canyons’ Performing Arts Center is offering one incredible night of Grammy award winning entertainment with their Festival Navidad, highlighting Mariachi Los Camperos.  This group, led by Nati Cano, is one of the most popular mariachi ensembles in the United States.  They will be performing Friday.  Mariachi Los Camperos has performed for nearly 50 years, including a PBS special, “In Performance at the White House”.  They are known for their complex musical arrangements that emphasize the skills and voices of each member.  Click here for a flyer on Festival Navidad. 

Compassionate Friends Candle Lighting
The holiday season can be a difficult time of year, especially for families grieving the death of a child.  Compassionate Friends invites you to participate in the 14th annual Worldwide Candle Lighting on Sunday.  The candle lighting is a symbolic way to show continuing love for a lost child of any age.  Sunday’s event will feature live performers, music, readings and poems.  Candles will be provided.  Please meet at 6:30pm  at Canyon Country Park located at 17615 Soledad Canyon Road (between Sierra Hwy and Sand Canyon).  Candles are first lit at 7pm, local time, just west of the International Date Line.  As candles burn down in one time zone, they are lighted in the next, creating a 24-hour wave of light as it continues around the world.  Click here for an in depth story. 

OLPH-A Night of Christmas Carols
Celebrate the holidays with A Night of Christmas Carols.  Our Lady of Perpetual Help (OLPH) is holding an evening of glorious caroling music featuring the Santa Clarita Valley Filipino Ministry Choir.  Everyone is invited to, as their flyer says, “exalt and rejoice for the coming of our Infant Jesus through our music”.  The event starts at 5pm Sunday at the OLPH Conference Center.  Admission is free, donations appreciated. 

Also brought to you by our friends at Facey Medical Center.
