Big Plans For This Weekendby Jim Gressinger on Feb. 11, 2012, under Day/Weekend Adventures, Exceptional Museums, Local Adventures, Local Art, Local Attractions, Things To Do With The Kidz
On the remote chance that you have not made plans for this weekend, be aware. There are great events happening today and tomorrow.
As Carolyn pointed out a few days ago in her blog Carolyn’s Community, all downtown museums will be open and FREE today (Saturday). Of the nine, there are actually 5 downtown museums that I have not yet visited and Neighbor Roy and I will correct that omission this afternoon (Saturday).
We will venture downtown in the midst of the Centennial Celebration and experience:
- The new Science Downtown museum.
- The Sacred Machine. I viewed their website – seriously weird. But we are going with an open mind.
- The Jewish History Museum.
- La Pilita.
- The Museum of Modern Art.
Neighbor Roy will be pushing me around these venues in my wheelchair, so if you see us, come up and say “Hi”.
Also this weekend is the Southern Arizona Arts & Culture Alliance festival at Four Corners. The four corners in this case border the intersection of Campbell and Skyline. This event is today and tomorrow, but as we will be celebrating downtown this afternoon, we will go to the Four Corners Fest tomorrow. Admission is FREE unless you want to sample the food – $20.
On a future note, Monday I will post #3 of my videos about the Five Least Known Best Southern Arizona Attractions. It’s a beauty.
