Can you believe we’re about to wrap up 2017?! Most folks will be busy with last minute holiday preparations and family adventures this weekend, but we thought we’d still issue a little round up – and remind you of our Christmas Cheat Sheet, full of all kinds of goodies, like links to the NORAD tracking, easy snack ideas, and reminders to charge your phones and buy batteries!
For all your activity ideas from now until 2018, check out our Mega List of What to do with the Kids in Moncton. We’ll return in the New Year with full round ups again. Until then, here’s a look at a few weekend events and a peak ahead to New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
Enjoy the next bit of time with your family and friends, and thank you for making Pickle Planet part of your 2017. We have lots of great plans for next year, but we always LOVE to hear from you about what you need from us. Feel free to comment below with your thoughts!
