Enjoy a Holiday Feast in Toronto
The Witches and Wizards Christmas Feast is coming up in Toronto on December 14. What’s the venue, you ask? Your guess is as good as mine because the location is kept secret until you receive your ticket! Tickets are available for both lunch and dinner feasts, and both events are set to be filled with photo ops, trivia, and delicious food and cocktails. Read more and snag your ticket here.
Get Out Your Dress Robes for the Yule Ball
The second annual Yule Ball in Dothan, Alabama, is set for December 14. It’s time to press your dress robes because jeans and sportswear are not allowed. The elegant event will include professional photos, dinner, and dancing. Space is limited, so get your tickets here.
That’s it for this week’s Events Roundup. Will you be attending a lock-in or a Yule Ball? If none of these events tickled your fancy (or were in your area), check back next time for more magical events!
