Weekend Warm-Up: March 28 – 30

My recommendations for something to do this weekend.

This weekend is shaping up to be quite busy with a number of activities going on around town.

Friday is Final Friday on Main Street and the Pendleton Art Center. Action is expanding to Vine Street with Park + Vine, Metronation, MiCA, and A Lucky Step all are open for Final Friday (I think). Add Lavomatic & Grammer’s for food and libations and you’ve got a great night. Joseph Williams Home is open until 9:00 pm and I know I am going to try and stop by there.

This Saturday begins the first High Steel Tours of Union Terminal. This weekend includes a few activities celebrating their 75th Anniversary so check out the Museum Center website. Saturday evening is Fountain Day on the Square. I wrote about it here before but in a nutshell you have . . .


Festivities start a little before 7:00 pm. Check website for exact times and all the bands.

Sunday for me is the Heart Mini Marathon 5k. I think I push off at 9:00 am. The Mini Marathon starts at 10:00. Sunday afternoon will consist of laying on the couch watching NCAA basketball . . .

If you want something educational for Sunday I am going to recommend seeing Doris Kearns Goodwin at Memorial Hall at 7:00 pm.:

"This historian, Pulitzer Prize-winner and author of such books as The Fitzgeralds and The Kennedys and Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream lectures as part of the Theodore Berry Lecture Series."

It is FREE but might be full so check with the Freedom Center.
