What To Do This Weekend

When I look at my Events Calendar, I am often amazed at how much there REALLY is for families to do in this City! This weekend - again - there are 15+ events between 6PM Friday and Bedtime Sunday Night! I'll touch on a few here - but be sure to visit the full Calendar to view all events & get details! :-)


First of all, I just have to mention Etcetera 25: You Can't Stop the Beat!: I am sure, when this student-choreographed show first began in a Mt. Pearl high-school in 1986, they had NO idea it would still be going strong, let alone how big and amazing a production it would be - at The Glacier, lights, sound machines, amazing props, etc. - 25 years later! 

I went to see Etcetera last night, and it ROCKED! I can't pick a favourite part: Bohemian Rhapsody (man, those boys can sing); Joyful! Joyful!; or Thriller (Seriously:  it rivaled the video! Spooky - my  6 & 8 yr olds would have been scared, but older kids are going to LOVE it).... or one of the other songs ;-) Plus, if you were in the show at one time, or know someone who was (and come on, who doesn't? I know more Etcetera alumni than I can count! .... Which might make me biased .... but ignore that, OK?) - head up to the Reunion Room to find yourself/them in the pictures and programs from all 25 years! 8PM, now through Saturday, tickets available at The Glacier.

The Fluvarium has started their Kids Club for the Season, held every Saturday and Sunday at 1:30 PM. Kids will enjoy an outdoor component, game, story and a craft! This month's theme is May Flowers and teaches how animals and plants works together in nature. Don't forget to head downstairs to visit the river fish underground!

MUN Botanical Gardens have also started their Summer family activities - pop by the garden Sunday AM for a Nature Hike, or join them between 2-4 that afternoon for crafts, duck feedings, story time and more! Stroll through the paths before heading home, and predict with the kids what flowers/greenery will appear in the months to come :-)

And for you folks who are counting down the days until Camping/Cabin Season begins on Victoria Day weekend - are you looking for a bargain on supplies, decorations, appliances & whatnot? There are several Flea Market on, both Saturday and Sunday!

Scroll down to the calendar, of course,  for details on all these events and more (Family Fun at The Rooms; Michael's craft event, etc! :-)


Have a great weekend!


For details on events in & around town, check my events calendar regularly - it is on the bottom of EVERY page :-) The Tely Go Guide published in Arts & Life section every Thursday is also a good source.
