THUNDER BAY – It can be as quiet or as busy as you like this pleasant December Saturday in Thunder Bay. If you got started on your day wondering what to do, here are some suggestions to make your weekend. Start off your morning with Breakfast with Santa in the Victoriaville Centre in the downtown south core. The kids will love it. Then you can head over to the Thunder Bay Country Market at the CLE Grounds and stock up on local treasures.

If you are out shopping, Angelo at the Urban Boutique on Memorial Avenue advises that they just received a huge shipment of great Christmas gift ideas or for self-gifting to make sure you look your best for the holiday club scene.

Tonight there is lots of choices. Anyone who honestly believes that there is ‘nothing to do’ in Thunder Bay simply isn’t paying attention. The Thunder Bay Symphony is hosting the Holiday Pops tonight.

The Thunder Bay North Stars are taking on the Fort Frances Lakers in exciting SIJHL Hockey Action. For those longing for ‘Hockey Night’ getting out and supporting the local team is a great way to have a fun night out. The puck drops at the Fort William Gardens at 7:30PM.
