this-weekend-april29

For the first time in at least a few weeks, the weather isn’t looking great for this weekend. They’re currently calling for a good chance of rain on Friday and Sunday, but hopefully that will all change here shortly. But even if it doesn’t, there are still lots of indoor events happening all over Beaver County this week.

My mother took my advice from this article last week and went to see Lincoln Park’s performance of The Little Mermaid. She then spent all evening Sunday raving about how exceptional the performance was, which once again reminded me that we definitely don’t pay enough attention to the amazing performances happening in Midland almost every weekend.

Here are some of the big things we’ve got on tap for the coming weekend!
