Jingle Bells & Beer – One thing about me: I love a good Friends of City Park event, and Jingle Bells & Beer is one of my faves! It’s the night to let your inner child come out and shine. The holiday party features access to rides, food, entertainment, and all the beer you can drink! Ugly sweaters are encouraged.

Toosii – “Toosie slide, then I hit it double-time” is what I think of when I hear Toosii’s name. But he’s more than a Drake lyric. The North Carolina rapper is known for his own popular tracks, “Love Cycle” feat. Summer Walker, and “Sapiosexual” — both of which he’ll be performing this weekend. Lakeyah, LOL Chibi, FCG Heem, and ZayTheGOAT are also on the bill
