Week in Preview

DCPD

Welcome to the Week in Preview where we highlight weekday family fun opportunities.

Here are my picks for weekday family fun!

 

Please visit our day trips ideas! Wouldn’t that be fun for a weekday getaway? Also, our WINTER FUN page is packed full of ideas. Like…FULL OF IDEAS. 


On Monday at the Muhammad Ali Center, they will be showing MLK’s famous, “I have a Dream,” speech between 11 am and 5 pm. Join them Monday for the showing in celebration of MLK day and Muhammad Ali’s 80th Birthday. It is free and open to the public (admissions to exhibits not included). First-come, first-served basis. They will also be having a Blood Drive during this time. Blood supply levels are at an all-time low, and your donation can ensure success for patients who need immediate care.


Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service by making our city greener for everyone! We will be planting trees in the Downtown Central Business District and we need your help. No experience required and families/groups are welcome! Monday, 1:00-4:00pm, at the corner of E Washington and S Floyd.


School’s Out and that means Champs Rollerdrome is open for fun! Load-up the family and join us for 3 hours of fun! We’ve got all your favorite tunes, a refreshed round of games in the arcade and of course… plenty of food and drinks at the snack bar.


Visit Bernheim Forest for  their Homeschool Hike on Tuesday at 1:00pm! This school year, they will be offering opportunities for families and co-ops to join Bernheim educators for an afternoon of learning, exercising, and adventure. Appropriate for grades K-5, each Forest Homeschool Hike includes a short lesson followed by a hike or activity that brings the lesson to life.

This week, we’ll be learning all about nature’s amazing work. Registration is required. 


Ready, Set, Explore Blackacre Conservancy this week! They are open sunrise to sunset, 7 days a week and offer loads of fun for your family. Hike, learn, feed the animals or join Miss Prim for storytime on Wednesday!
