Mid-November CNY Weekend Events

Enjoy these CNY weekend events to help take your mind off of upcoming holiday stress.

Good afternoon! Thanks for clicking on this edition of the CNY weekend events guide filled with a select handful of the many things going on in and around town.

A change is in the air. With the upcoming holiday season, embrace family and friends wholeheartedly and prevent the political turmoil on both sides of the fence (and those pesky third party neighbors who just love to stick their nose in everything) to ruin things.
