9 Events Happening the First Week of May in Twin Falls
The first weekend of May is here, and the weather sadly will not realize it, as we are expected to see the temperatures drop from where they were last weekend. Despite the chillier weather, it should still be a good weekend, and there are plenty of events to get you out of the house to enjoy your time off work, without getting bored or staying home. Here are some of the events to attend this weekend in Twin Falls to get you out of the house.
Thursday, May 4 Through Sunday, May 7 - 'Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3'
One of the most anticipated movies of the year hits theaters this weekend, and for any Marvel fans, it has been a long wait for 'Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3.' The movie will finally hit theaters this weekend, which means it may be a bit crowded, but to avoid spoilers, you might want to hit the movies soon to see what is expected to be an epic flick.

Thursday, May 4 - All Industry Hiring Event

Thursday, May 4 - Dungeons and Dragons
For anyone that is a fan of Dungeons and Dragons, but struggles to find people to play with from time to time, your search is over. This Thursday, May 4, there will be Dungeons and Dragons at the Twin Falls Public Library from 5:30 PM until 8:30 PM. Every other Thursday Dungeons and Dragons takes place at the library, so if you can't make it this week, you can try again in two weeks. Bring your friends, come alone, dress up, and have fun playing some D and D to start your weekend, and perhaps make some new friends in the process.
Thursday, May 4 Through Sunday, May 7 - 'Dungeons and Dragons'
If you can't play Dungeons and Dragons and haven't seen the movie yet, it is still in theaters this weekend. Having been out for a few weeks, you could likely have the theater to yourself. While everyone is seeing 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' perhaps you enjoy a different movie and avoid the crowds. To check out movie times, make sure to click the link above.

Saturday, May 6 - Movie Matinee
While seeing one of the bigger movies in the movie theater is nice, it can be a little pricey. Sometimes it is nice to get out of the house and have some fun without spending money. Every Saturday at the Twin Falls Public Library they hold a movie matinee from 3 PM to 5 PM. While it is possible it is a movie you have seen before, it is still fun for the family to get out of the house for a bit and catch a flick. For more on the movie matinee, and for more on what is coming up at the Twin Falls Public Library, click the link above.
There may not be as much going on this weekend as last, but there is still tons to do to enjoy the time away from work. Go catch a movie or two, perhaps catch a free one at the library, play a game of Dungeons and Dragons, enjoy the spectacle that is Shoshone Falls After Dark, jump on some trampolines without screaming kids around, take in a classic play, shoot a rock chuck or two, and maybe find a new job or career. Whatever you decide to do, have fun, be safe, and enjoy your weekend.
