We've got two county fairs, blues at Vangarde Arts, Samantha Fish does a show at Preservation Plaza. Also at the Lakes, legendary comedy troupe, The Second City plays Pearson Lakes Arts Center, and Okoboji Summer Theatre heads into the home stretch. Back in Sioux City it's African Night at 1st United Methodist Church.

One Book One Siouxland continues, Tolerance Week begins, the Sioux City Symphony has two composers, a DJ and a Grammy winnig Soprano not to mention an after-party in the Woodbury County Court House and you can learn how to play the tin sandwich at Vangarde Arts.
Sioux City Community Theatre opens a show, there's a couple of Celtic music groups to get you ready for St. Patrick's Day, the SCSO is bringing in a dance troupe from NYC and and why have a Fat Tuesday when you can have a Fat Saturday with a Mardi Gras Party at Vangarde Arts?
Broomball, fireworks, chili, something called mega snow pong and big ol' kites just a few of the many activities going on at the Lakes this weekend. Last chance to see Aladdin Jr. at LAMB and Rumors at Sioux City Community Theatre plus Lil' Red and the Medicated Moose drop a CD.
It's a typical December Cultural Continuum with loads of Christmas specials and theater offerings. The Art Center opens up the Gilchrist Learning Center, a legendary singer/songwriter from Austin visits Vangarde and Santa can be spotted in any number of places.

The Sioux City International Film Festival gets underway Wednesday, but there are loads of things to do leading up to that. Live music, BBQ, hot rods, a planetarium show in Wayne and a chance to audition for the Northwest Iowa Symphony Orchestra.

An interview with Lindsay Bauer, executive director of Orange City Arts and Siouxland Public Media's Artist of the Month.
