MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Christmas may be over, but that doesn’t mean the celebrations are. From Kwanzaa to hockey, WCCO’s Natalie Nyhus shows us some great events happening this weekend to check out.

Kwanzaa

For many, the holiday season is about spending time with loved ones. At this Saturday’s Kwanzaa Family Day at the Minnesota History Center, you can do just that while honoring African American culture and community.

Kwanzaa is the seven-day celebration of the Seven Principles: unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith.

This year’s festivities at the museum will showcase live music and performance, food and storytelling.

Home and Landscape Expo

This weekend, head to the Minneapolis Convention Center for the Home and Landscape Expo.

Thousands are expected to check exhibits and demonstrations from local and national companies in home improvement.

It’s a great place to find answers to your home questions.

USA Hockey

Saturday, USA Hockey brings the USA vs. Canada Olympic Exhibition Game, featuring the U.S. Women’s National Hockey Team, to Xcel Energy Center.

See the Women’s National Team playing Canada in preparation for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

The action starts at 3 p.m.
