From basketball and plays to running a race, there are plenty of ways to enjoy all that the area has to offer this weekend. Here are our five tips!
Start your year with a run
If your resolution is to be healthier, there is a run you can join Saturday. The Resolution Run 5k will help you get your year started on the right foot.
The race starts at the Wade Springs Trailhead pavilion (609 E. 1100 North in Pleasant Grove). The race starts at 2 p.m Saturday and top finishers in each age division will win a $5 gift card to Trader Joe's in Orem.
Cheer on the Cougars
Saturday you can catch not one, but two games at the Marriott Center (701 E. University Parkway in Provo).
The BYU women’s basketball team will take on Portland at 2 p.m. and for the second game of the double-header, the BYU men’s basketball team will take on Loyola Marymount at 7 p.m.
Support law enforcement
The final night of the Shinners Memorial Concert will start at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
Featuring Country Music Sensation, Billy Dean, the memorial concert is being held to help raise the funds needed to send Shinners' family members and select Provo officers to Washington, D.C. in May 2020 for National Police Week. Shinners will be honored in a series of events during this week, and will have his name added to the Fallen Officer Memorial Wall in our Nation's Capital.
The concert is held at the Covey Center for the Arts (425 W. Center St. in Provo).
