What’s Happening in the Tri Cities: Stand By for 2014


Place Des Arts January 2014 Exhibition

Stealing quietly into the New Year, the Tri Cities rev up ever so gently with a few events to get you over the post-Christmas blahs. Check out the arts for inspiration and get your little-uns reading for the win, or treat yourself to an evening of toe-tapping – there’s plenty for everyone coming out of hibernation. Remember – the nights are getting shorter and it’s never too soon to think about taxes. Happy New Year!
