Events Hopping into Town This Weekend

This holiday weekend is filled with a variety of events around CNY, including Salt City Horror Fest, ‘How I Learned to Drive,’ Tempest and much more.

Spring has sprung, and bird songs will be sung! It’s time to welcome the weekend and all of the seasonal blooming events around CNY this weekend.

Aside Passover and Easter celebrations, there is much to be excited for. The Crunch and the Comets will be ending their seasons this weekend with a couple home games. The Price is Right is running into town with three opportunities to fill your game show fix. The Chinese Lantern festival lights up the Fairgrounds. Salt City Horror fest is scary consistent with 35mm features on Saturday, plus a The Big Lebowski and Purple Rain double feature Friday night. And, yes, there is plenty of music.

Have a great weekend!
