Here are some of the events our colleagues are checking out around town.

KATE HINDS, WNYC reporter: "I can't get enough of holiday craft fairs and I start right after Thanksgiving and go through Christmas," said Kate. She's very excited for a two day shop fest on Saturday and Sunday at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan for the Bust Magazine Holiday Craftacular & Food Festival.

ERIC BRASURE, New York Public Radio membership manager: Touring neighborhoods to check out the home light and decoration displays is always a fun thing to do. Eric is planning a visit to Dyker Heights, Brooklyn, where residents take it to a new level with neighbors trying to outdo each other every year. Their competition gives a great free show for everyone else, plus some of them give away hot chocolate. 

LIZ WEBER, pledge drive producer: How many tubas can you fit on the Rockefeller Center ice rink? Liz wants to find out so she's headed to Tuba Christmas NYC on Sunday at 3:30pm where organizers promise hundreds of tuba and euphonium musicians who will perform a concert of holiday classics.
