Around here, Christmas brings with it a bevy of fun festivities: The Laura Little Theatrical Productions musical, Traditions of Christmas, is at the Nampa Civic Center through Saturday, Dec. 23. Enjoy everything from live animals to a "beautifully choreographed kick-line." On Friday, Dec. 21, it will look like the president of Christmas is in town, as a group of Garden City Police and Ada County Metro SWAT officers escort St. Nick through town during the Santa Comes to Garden City event. Then, enjoy family friendly funny on Saturday Dec. 23 at the Odd Saturdays Improv Comedy Show: Christmas, where New Ventures Lab will "put the jolly in your holly." Wrap things up on Christmas Day during Miracle on Idaho Street at Old Chicago, where homeless or displaced Boiseans can get a free meal and gifts, and visit with Santa.
