Enjoy 8 Events in the Magic Valley The Weekend Before Thanksgiving
It is the week before Thanksgiving, making it a busy time for many. There is grocery shopping to be done, food to begin preparing, cleaning the house, and cleaning the yard before the family arrives. This weekend can be stressful with all the preparation before the holiday next week, but through all the chaos, chores, and errands, it is nice to take a break and attend an event taking place. Escape the cooking and baking, take a break from errands, or get off the couch and attend one of the events taking place in the Magic Valley this weekend.

Thursday, November 16 - Songs of Thanksgiving Community Concert

Saturday, November 18 - Movie Matinee
Movies are getting pricey, which is why sometimes you have to be selective when you go to the movies and what is worth seeing in theaters. Because of this, many of us miss getting out to go to the movies. You can still do so but save money in the process by going to the Twin Falls Public Library on Saturdays from 3 PM to 5 PM for Movie Matinee. This allows you to get out of the house, enjoy a movie, and do so for free. For more on Movie Matinee and to see what is going on at the Twin Falls Public Library, make sure to click the link above.
Saturday, November 18 - 'Teton Gravity Research: Legend Has It'
There is more than a comedy show taking place at the Orpheum Theatre this weekend, as there will also be a showing of 'Teton Gravity Research: Legend Has It.' The showing will be at 7 PM and tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for those 16 and under. To find out more about the movie and to get your tickets, make sure to click the link above.
Take a break preparing for the holiday next week and get out and enjoy one of the events above. Help the homeless in the area, donate a turkey, shop for local crafts and gifts for the holiday, shop and support local kids, laugh at a comedy, take in a movie for free, take in a special showing, or attend a concert. Whatever you decide to do, have fun, be safe, and enjoy your weekend.
