They had a new show this year featuring Olympic medalist Elvis Stojko. It was called 'Twas That Night and was an ice skating show loosely based on 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. It was a fantastic show, and Eleanor was completely mesmerized from start to finish. Eleanor also kept reaching over and putting her arm around Jane :) :) It was so sweet!!
We also went to Gloria, the Gospel show, which we go to every year. That one was wonderful, as always. Eleanor got very into clapping! Her favorite show, though, was Scrooge No More, which she loved last year, so I was really pushing to try to get her there this year, too. The music is fantastic, and the story is acted out as much as it is sung, so Eleanor could really follow it as much as she does.
Besides the shows, we took a ride on the carousel, the Roto Baron, the Lil' Clydes, and the balloons.
We bundled up in the cold and enjoyed the lights, the fake snow, and the Polar Pathway. Eleanor did not like the polar bear bench this year. I couldn't tell whether she was just tired, or if she thought the polar bear was real and was afraid. Either way, she wasn't having it. We also watched the tree light show near the Fest Haus.
I think I might have to add this back to our "must do" list during the Advent season...I am so glad we were able to go this year again!
