Here are some of the best things happening on Friday, Nov. 28: 

COMMUNITY | Tonight is the Holiday Light Show Lighting Ceremony in downtown Coeur d'Alene, a tree-lighting ceremony in Sandpoint, as well as the Spokane Winter Glow Spectacular and holiday lighting ceremony. This would be a good time to mention you should check out The Inlander's brand-spanking-new Holiday Guide, full of tips for making the most of your holiday season.

Here's a look at the trailer: 

VISUAL ARTS | The students of the Spokane Art School have a bunch of brand-new, hand-made holiday ornaments for you to check out, or buy, starting today.
