There are plenty of festive activities to do during this second-to-last weekend before Christmas. Here's a handful of suggestions in this week's High Five!

-A scroll through Fresno's Chaffee Zoo will get you in the Christmas spirit. 18 acres of the zoo are now covered in lights for the 5th Annual Zoo Lights. Go for a stroll through brilliantly lit pathways, take a photo with Santa and enjoy live entertainment. It's 5-8pm all weekend long. Tickets start at $6 for adult, $4 for children ages 2-11.

-A holiday tradition returns to the Valley this weekend. The Central California Ballet has three performances of the Nutcracker. There's a 2:00 matinee on Saturday and Sunday, and an evening performance Saturday at 7:30. Ticket prices start at $25 for adults, $18 for kids 12 and under.

-Another musical production for the whole family: the Children's Music Theaterworks presents "Beauty and the Beast, Jr." It's at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Fresno. Tickets are just $10 for kids. Visit www.cmtworks.com for show times.

-The 2nd Annual Holiday Boutique is being held at the Clovis Bingo Hall. It's Saturday from 9am-2pm. Expect 30 vendors and door prizes every 30 minutes. Donate a toy for Toys for Tots and get three raffle tickets. It's also a great way to shop local and get some items crossed off your Christmas list.

-You can also donate a toy and get a free pancake breakfast with all the sides at Tailspin Tommy's. The toys collected will go to kids at Allensworth Elementary, located in a low-income area. The toy drive is happening Saturday from 7am-9am. The aerodrome eatery is located inside the terminal at the Fresno-Chandler airport.
