Through December 28
Pacific Northwest Ballet
We're still we're still a little upset the PNB ditched the iconic Maurice Sendak-designed sets they used for 32 years, but their performance of George Balanchine’s classic version (with sets/costumes by the guy behind beloved children's book Olivia the Pig) has pretty much made up for it. It runs through the 28th , so grab your tickets before they all sell out.
Cost: Tickets start at $32.
Through December 30
A Christmas market, an ice skating rink, holiday food & drink, live entertainment and, most importantly, a giant Christmas light maze that takes up the entire outfield at Safeco.
