Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat: This weekend, Eastlight Theatre in East Peoria is putting on Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. This Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice musical tells the story of Joseph and his eleven brothers. It was created as a soft rock fantasy that is fit for the entire family.

309 Cultures Holiday Market: With 36 booths each day and 44 diverse vendors total across this Saturday and Sunday, the 309 Cultures Holiday Market is one of the most fun and easiest ways to shop local this holiday season. Premier will have their full bar available to shoppers both days and Sunday Zion Coffee Bar will be in the building with their new mobile cart plus live music throughout.

Santa's Woodland Workshop: Saturday and Sunday, Peoria Parks is hosting Santa's Woodland Workshop. Elves of all ages are welcome to pick out three, quality, hand-crafted projects to make, wrap and take home while enjoying cocoa, treats and a visit with Santa! Parents are encouraged to stay. There are multiple sessions on Saturday and one on Sunday.
