There's only about a week until Christmas, and schedules are filling up. But if you're planning on entertaining the kids or visitors over break, you'll need more than a stack of holiday movies to fall back on.

Which is why we compiled this list of Rochester-area holiday events, loosely organized by category, from the Post-Bulletin calendar, Civic Center, and Facebook. We found more than 60 entries between the 12th and 25th.

This is a live list, so we've kept updating it as more information comes in -- check back throughout the next week for the latest info!
