SKH Weekend RoundUp: SantaCon, Peacock Lane and Holiday Spirits Fest

It’s not quite Christmas yet, but you would never know that by the amount of events sporting a holiday theme. It’s time to get your tinsel on and get out and enjoy many of the fun activities this weekend offers. Or shop. It’s a really good weekend to wrap that up too.
