Good morning! It's Monday again, and apparently the busiest day of the year for FedEx and UPS. The more you know. (Also, there was a subtle reminder in there to send out your Christmas/holiday presents.) Here's what's going on around town today.
At 10 a.m., the McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture will have a stroller tour. Parents, caregivers, and their kiddos can go through the decorative arts holiday exhibit today for free. The museum does ask that you register, which you can do here (and register for future tours as well).
At noon in the visitor center, do a little rockin' around the Christmas tree while Charlie Parr performs for WDVX's Blue Plate Special. As always, it's free to attend.
Mix up your workout with a beginner's tribal fusion belly dance class at the Broadway Academy of Performing Arts and Events at 6 p.m. Claire Metz will lead the class, which costs $12 to attend. More info is at Metz's website.
The Knoxville Nativity Pageant, which includes a cast of more than 200 people, a choir, an orchestra, and live animals, will begin at 7 p.m. at the Knoxville Coliseum. The pageant has been held in Knoxville since 1969. There's more info here about Spanish translation, and accommodations for the deaf. It's FREE to attend.
It's comedy con queso night at the Well. Starting at 9 p.m., if you open a tab, you get free cheese. That's in addition to the stand-up show, where local amateurs can test their best jokes. No cover! 21+ only.
