A big Pride event in Orange City this weekend, WITCC hosts a Zombie Walk followed by a blood crawl, which is kind of like a pub crawl, except Halloweenier. There's a CROP Walk too and where in the heck is Sixto Rodriguez? The NMM goes Searching for Sugarman in Vermillion.

If downtown smells particularly good on your drive home, it's probably Artilicious at the Sioux City Art Center. Morningside College Piano Recital Series is back in action this weekend and there's a steady stream of things happening at the Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center.

This is the last weekend to check out the National Music Museum for awhile, college theater at Morningside and Wayne, there's a smattering of hikes and an Elvis (Costello) collaborator, which is way different than an Elvis impersonator.

The Sioux City Symphony Orchestra takes us to a galaxy far, far away...not that long from now, actually as they open the 2018-2019 season with Star Wars - A New Hope this weekend. We've got theater covering everything from Frankenstein to Junie B. Jones and you can't throw a rock without hitting some kind of mineral or fossil show this weekend.
