3 fun things


‘Frozen’ and more

Christmas brings peace, love and joy — as well as turkey, cookies and super-excited kids — but the day after can bring a desperate desire to shake off the cabin fever and get out of the house. The Switzer Library, the main branch of the Cobb County system, has just the thing: a free film screening of “Frozen.” Don’t worry if your tykes have already seen it a hundred times. This outing includes a variety of craft projects to keep them doubly entertained. Perhaps they’ll “build snowman …” The only way to find out is to show up and join in.

3-5 p.m. Dec. 26. Free. 266 Roswell St., Marietta. 770-528-2320, cobbcat.org.


Scottish Solstice Celebration

Capture the music, beauty and tradition of the Scottish Highlands without the hassle of hopping on a plane. Asheville-based musician Jamie Laval and his Celtic performers are bringing their Scottish Solstice Celebration to Red Clay Music Foundry. The show is complete with harp, bassoon, fiddles and, of course, bagpipes. The kilts will twirl as the ghillie brogues fly during an evening designed to take attendees on a journey through music, dance, poetry and tales that center around the ancient celebration of the winter solstice. Discounts are available for students and those who need wheelchair access.

7 p.m. Dec. 26. $20-$34. Red Clay Music Foundry, 3116 Main St., Duluth. 404-478-2749, eddieowenpresents.com.


Hogwarts Christmas Feast

“Accio Feast!” All die-hard Harry Potter fans know that’s the spell to summon a megameal. Even if you have no apparition ability, you can still join the fun of a Hogwarts Christmas Feast in Sandy Springs. The elves at Battle and Brew are whipping up 10 courses of holiday dishes for wizards and muggles alike. Grab a pumpkin juice or sample seasonal brews while dressed as your favorite Harry Potter character or in chosen house colors. Tickets are nine galleons, 14 sickles and three knuts (that’s $100 in muggle money) and are likely to sell out, so reserve your space in advance.

7:30-11 p.m. Dec. 28. $100. Battle and Brew, 5920 Roswell Road, Sandy Springs. 678-560-1500, battleandbrew.com.
