Need to get out of your house? Below you'll see three fun things you can do this weekend that will definitely get you in the mood for Christmas.

1) Holiday Movies - Rochester's Drive-In Theater is located at the Olmsted Co. Fairgrounds. This month they are showing holiday classics on the big screen and this weekend they have three of the best Christmas movies ever made playing. Catch Home Alone, Home Alone 2, and Christmas Vacation this weekend. Get ticket info and showtimes here. 

2) Holiday Lights -  Load up the family and take a drive around Rochester and southeast Minnesota to check out some of the best-decorated houses (scroll down to see those) or park your car and walk through some of the best-decorated neighborhoods. 

3) Holiday Shopping -  Shop on Small Business Saturday. The Rochester Downtown Alliances says our local shops and restaurants "create jobs, boost the economy, and preserve neighborhoods in downtown Rochester." A hot item this year is Hot Cocoa Bombs. Also, consider buying restaurant gift cards to give as Christmas presents. Restaurants really need are help so you could also try a new place this weekend.
