Stay Warm and Entertained This Winter in the Aurora Area!

**Disclosure: Thank you to the Aurora Area CVB and Paramount Theatre for providing tickets for my winter giveaway. No other compensation was received; all opinions are 100% my own.

The winter months can be particularly long and grey here in the Chicago area. Fortunately, there are a few upcoming events in the Aurora area that will inspire you and your family to get out and enjoy engaging activities and performances. I am happy to highlight three upcoming events that are each unique and will have you engaging the senses this winter season. I am also giving away four tickets to the Blind Boys of Alabama performance on January 18, 2019 at the Paramount Theatre -- so be sure to enter!


Blind Boys of Alabama:

Warm up with the sounds of the Blind Boys of Alabama during their visit to Paramount Theatre Aurora on January 18 at 8PM. With a career spanning over 70 years, the musical group will inspire and captivate you with their unique interpretations of gospel favorites and renditions of contemporary spiritual music. The Blind Boys draw special influence from the blues and jazz adding their own zestiness to gospel. The jubilant sounds of the Blind Boys of Alabama will surely uplift you during our long winter days! The group has appeared on recordings with Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson, Lou Reed, Peter Gabriel and more. Couple your evening at Paramount Theatre with a dinner and you have a wonderful date night opportunity! The stirring sounds of these five time Grammy Award Winners have been rousing audiences for decades and are sure to make you fans for life! Tickets are currently available through the Paramount Theatre.

During the full scale production, your family will be amazed as 55 of Ukraine's most talented ballet performers bring alive Tchaikovsky's classical ballet Swan Lake. The incredible performance is sure to move and captivate you. I cannot think of a more perfect setting for for a performance of one of the great ballets!
