If you’re looking for something fun to do this weekend, KDUK’s Valerie Steele has these suggestions. There are many events happening including lots of comedy, dance, running and more.
Broadway in Eugene is bringing together ’80s rock and roll and a great love story for its show Rock of Ages. A small town girl meets a big city rocker on the Sunset Strip where they fall in love. There are two shows at the Hult Center on Saturday at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. Tickets are still available. They start at $35.
Need a good laugh? The McDonald Theater welcomes comedian Paula Poundstone. She’ll perform her stand-up comedy show this Friday night. That starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are still available. They’re $27.
Runners–think you can predict your running time? Try your luck at the Winter Predictor. This fun run and walk had you predict your finish time in advance, but no watches are allowed. There will be prizes. That happens Saturday at 10 a.m. At Skinner Butte Park in Eugene. Admission is $20.
Take part in a different kind of workout. This Saturday you can learn African dance during a class at the W.O.W. Hall in Eugene. All skill levels are welcome. It starts at 11 a.M. Admission is $12 for drop-ins and $10 for students with id.
If your green thumb is just dying for warmer weather, you can get your home and garden fix at the 8th Annual Good Earth Home, Garden and Living Show. Get ideas on how to improve home from local vendors. The show is Friday through Sunday at the Lane Events Center. Admission is free with a canned food donation.
Looking ahead to next week, there’s still time to get your tickets for the Florence Crab Crack. The event is Saturday, Feb. 2 at the Florence Events Center. You’ll get Oregon Coast crab with all the fixings and dessert. Tickets are $25, which must be purchased in advance by Jan. 24. All proceeds go to the Florence Food Share.
