Here we are approaching the weekend again and I have found a few low cost things to do. Since the weather is still going to be nice here in Phoenix, we certainly need to take advantage of it!
Astronomy Night: Friday night 7:30 p.m.at Vistancia. Tony Laconte will take participants on a guided walk on the Discovery Trail to the solar garden where he will give a presentation on the constellations and some Native American folklore and Greek mythology behind the stars' stories. Check out www.vistancia.com for more information!
Friends of Avondale Libraries Book Sale: Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m - 4:30 p.m. at the Avondale Civic Center Library. Admission is free, book prices vary. www.avondale.org/library
Be Green and Be Healthy Fair: Saturday, 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. at the Surprise Recreation Campus at 15960 N bullard Ave, 623-222-2000. Guests can have a blood-pressure check, meet with health professionals, get a five minute massage and learn how to conserve resources. Admission is free, check out surpiseaz.gov/specialevents.
Despicable Me: There are two places you can take your family to see this movie for free this weekend. You can head over to Westgate City Center on Friday where a rep from the Arizona Challenger Space Center will host science demonstrations, space simulations and astronaut mascot meet-and-greets before the movie starts at 7:30 p.m. Or, head out to Surprise Stadium and bring blankets and pillows and stretch out on the lawn to watch the movie at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free to both, concessions available at Surprise. No lawn chairs or ice chests will be allowed at the Surprise Stadium. www.peoriaaz.gov/specialevents
International Museum Day: Friday, May 19th, check out the various museums in the Valley for discounts and special events!
If none of these events sound fun to you, find a park and have a picnic, or head up a Phoenix mountain for a hike. Enjoy this unusual May weather!!
