Welcome to ShekouDaily's This Weekend & Beyond Newsletter. The holiday season is fast approaching and people everywhere are already starting to prepare. This weekend is full of great events and activities so take some time off from planning your winter break schedules and head out to have some fun. I do want to mention that there's a storm brewing in the South China sea. At the moment it doesn't appear to be very strong or coming towards us so hopefully it won't affect our weekend. If it does, we'll update this post with any cancellations or changes. Have a great weekend!
