About

It's hard to keep track of all the festivities crammed into the holiday season. Advent-ure is a compilation of things to do organized by day. Events are ordered from most to least time sensitive to make planning easier. See some lights, watch a performance, take a class and make some gifts, or just relax in holiday style.

Advent-ure was conceived of only a few short days prior to December first, which obviously didn't leave much time for design, development, and fact-finding. So updates will be on-going but I'm excited to have some information available in time for the start of the holiday season. Check back often!
