Ho ho hope y’all are ready for a weekend, because it’s happening beginning at 5 p.m. today, ready or not.

There are some holiday shows happening around the region, including TheatreSquared’s A Christmas Carol at Fayetteville Public Library, a cabaret-style show The Heart of Christmas at T2’s theatre downtown. Here’s ticket info for those.

You could also check out some holiday tunes at Rivercrest Orchard when Ashtyn Barbaree & her holiday band, The Christmas Trees, will perform at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday night.

Also in performances, you could check out Tina Fey’s Mean Girls at Walton Arts Center, which is playing through the weekend. Ticket info is here.

In music, local legends The Cate Brothers are together again to play their annual December show at George’s Majestic Lounge on Saturday night. It’s an 8 p.m. show. Also at George’s this weekend, the Bel Aires play happy hour on Friday night, and locals Boom Kinetic will perform later on that evening. George’s tickets.

If you’re looking for a burlesque show, you’d be out of luck most weekends in Fayetteville, but you can find one on Sunday night at Holidaze Naughty Bar on Block Avenue. It’s called Santa’s Naughty List, and Radiant Rubenesque is the troupe behind the show. Here’s more info.

How about some comedy? Comedian and Rush Hour 1-3 star Chris Tucker will perform at The Grove Comedy Club in Lowell. Tucker will be doing sets both Friday and Saturday night. Here’s ticket info.

There’s a holiday market by the folks behind Fayetteville Farmers’ Market on the Square on Saturday morning. It starts at 11 a.m., and will include all kinds of handmade items and gifts.

There’s plenty more below. Have a very merry weekend, everyone.
