From fall football to a Blizzard run, there are plenty of ways to enjoy all that the area has to offer this weekend. Here are our five tips!
See a tribute show
If you’re a fan of popular country/folk singer John Denver, head to the Covey Center for the Arts (425 W. Center St., Provo) Saturday.
John Denver tribute artist Ted Vigil will be honoring the musical legacy of John Denver in a tribute show at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets range from $20-$25.
Run a chilly race
Vineyard is hosting a race this week with a delicious end. The city’s second annual Blizzard 5K includes a prize for every running — a free Dairy Queen Blizzard. There also will be Starbucks Hot Chocolate at the end of the race.
The race will start at Vineyard Grove Park (350 N. 100 East, Vineyard) at 9 a.m. Saturday.
Monday is Veterans Day, but you can get a head start on honoring veterans with the SCERA’s Celebration of Veterans show.
The event Saturday morning will feature music and patriotic presentations, as well as keynote speaker Andrew Wilson, a Vietnam veteran.
The event is free for the public and starts at 10 a.m. Saturday at the SCERA Center for the Arts (745 S. State St., Orem).
Learn about space
The Museum of Ancient Life at Thanksgiving Point (2929 N. Thanksgiving Way, Lehi) will host an event Saturday that is out of this world. Planet Palooza is an educational and fun look at the solar system and how planets came to exist.
There are fun activities for kids of all ages and BYU professor Jani Radebaugh will share knowledge of the latest discoveries in space.
The event will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
Enjoy some late-season football
It’s November and before you know it, football season will be coming to an end. BYU’s football team only has two more home games this season, including this weekend’s game against Liberty.
The Cougars will face off against BYU at 5:30 p.m. Saturday at LaVell Edwards Stadium (1700 N. Canyon Road, Provo). You can also have fun with the whole family with the activities at Cougar Canyon outside the stadium before the game.
