Looking for some fun activities between your family time around Thanksgiving? I’ve got you covered. Here are five local events you can do over the next month or so!
Walnut Creek on Ice! (thru Jan. 20, 2020)
If you haven’t taken advantage of Walnut Creek’s little ice rink in previous winters, now is your chance! Visit their website for more info on prices, hours, etc.
Leonids Meteor Shower (night of Nov. 17) – Anywhere!
This is a regular event, but still well-worth staying up late to watch! If it’s a clear night, you can wrap up in a blanket in the backyard and see a dazzling display of shooting meteors. One of nature’s best performances.

This week’s Exploratorium After Dark is called “Nonsense Machines,” which sounds just so San Francisco. This is a super fun adult nighttime outing in the City. Tickets are about $20!
