There’s a mixed bag of events to enjoy in this quiet time between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. 

This weekend’s options include ice skating, a comedy show and the debut of popular dance party High Fever in its new location, Queen Street Bistro. For more New Year’s Eve activities, check out our list of 15+ events here.

Here are six things to do this weekend in Lancaster County.

Ice skating

Grab your skates: Flight on Ice Entertainment set up their pop-up ice skating rink in the parking lot of the former Bon-Ton earlier this month. The skating rink remains up until the end of February, so you’ll have other chances to hit the ice if you don’t get to go this weekend.
