What to Do This Weekend: Family Time Fun

Now that we've stuffed ourselves on turkey, here are some fun family activities to fill the rest of our weekend!

• For many families, it's almost a tradition to go to the movies after Thanksgiving. Some kid-friendly options for this weekend include:
               • The Good Dinosaur, which opened Wednesday
               • Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, an option for the older kids

• The 35th annual Light-Up Louisville, powered by LG&E, will serve as a kickoff celebration to Louisville's Holiday in the City. Light Up Louisville will be held today with the arrival of Santa Claus, who will help illuminate downtown Louisville.
• Get those blades ready! The Ice Skating Rink in downtown Jeffersonville opens for the season at noon today. Or plan to skate on Saturday while you also attend Jeffersonville's Holiday Parade at
5 pm on Spring Street and Light Up of Warder Park at 5:30 pm

• Show the giving spirit of the season by selecting a child's name from The Salvation Army Angel Tree. Adoptions are available now at Jefferson, Oxmoor, and St. Matthews malls and will be available at select area Wal-Mart stores tomorrow. Teach your children about the importance of giving while providing one of these 6,174 children something to smile about on Christmas morning.

• Be there when the lights come on! Greenway Park is the scene for the countdown to Light Up Charlestown on Friday evening, kicking off several holiday events in the city.

• New Albany offers its 6th annual Holiday Fest and Jingle Walk from 1-6 pm Saturday. After the Jingle Walk, the Light Up New Albany Celebration will take place at Bicentennial Park shortly after 6 pm

• Walk off some of those holiday calories at the After Thanksgiving Full Moon Hike at 8 pm Saturday at Charlestown State Park. The free, one-hour hike will be just over 1.2 miles but offers enough elevation changes to give it a Moderate rating.

• Train enthusiasts will love the Holiday Train Exhibit at Yew Dell Botanical Gardens. Starting today, you can see a snow village and model trains, go shopping without the crowds, entertain the kids with a gnome scavenger hunt and visit Santa (on exhibit days from noon-4pm).

Wishing you and your family a wonderful weekend!
