The weather this weekend is looking wet and cold with snow mixed with rain starting tomorrow morning and lasting until Sunday morning. Not much accumulation expected. I keep chanting to myself, spring is only a month away. It has become my mantra. This selection of weekend events concentrates on the indoors!
With the weather in mind, though the roads are probably going to be slushy but passable, call events in advance to make sure nothing has changed.
The Discovery Museum in Bridgeport has free admission and a lot of extras on Saturday the 23rd for their Black History Month Celebration. There will be performances by dancers, musicians, a storyteller, planetarium shows, and samples of home grown food.
The new Healing Newtown Arts Space has number of free programs open to everyone--not just Newtown residents (I checked!). On Saturday, all ages can learn about and make mandala art. Saturday night they will have a free family dance party. Head over to the website and register in advance.
The Yale Peabody will have an extra program on Birds of Prey included in the regular museum admission. The presenter is bringing five live animals! A parent tip: be prepared to line up outside of the presentation room about a half-hour or more before the scheduled time and bring something for the kids to do while you wait. You'll get a good spot.
