From a train show to comedy, there are plenty of ways to enjoy all that the area has to offer this weekend. Here are our five tips!
Enjoy a concert
The Nashville Tribute Band will bring country and Christian sounds to the SCERA Center for the Arts (745 S. State St., Orem). The group is joined by country trio Due West and pop singer/songwriters Ben and Chad Truman, also known as the Truman Brothers.
The show starts at 7 p.m. Saturday. Tickets range from $12-$14.
It’s January, and it may not be the ideal time for a swim in the lake, but this weekend is your chance to try it.
Head to the Frigid 5K and Penguin Plunge where you can run a chilly 5K and then plunge into the real cold of Utah Lake to earn some clout and a keychain.
The race starts at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Utah Lake State Park (4400 W. Center St., Provo).
Be a superhero
The annual Superhero Saturday at Thanksgiving Point (3003 N. Thanksgiving Way, Lehi) is a fun event for the whole family. Those participating can come dressed in a superhero costume and the Show Barn will be filled with inflatable obstacle courses, slides, bounce houses and superheroes.
The event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and tickets are $5-$6.
