After a week of meteors and a Supermoon, it’s time for a super weekend starting with a late night movie at the Rio, perhaps a trip to the farmers market in the morning, a turn in the World’s Largest Sandbox, and an informative historical walking tour on Sunday. Here are some other suggestions for fun that have been submitted for listing. Have a great weekend!
