Are you planning a visit to the Red River Valley fair in Fargo, North Dakota? Then you should be aware of the very steep prices you are going to pay. There is a lot to do at the fair, as long as you have the money to spend.
There is also a temporary animated remote control at Cranbrook, Hatching the Past, which will run through September 6th. It deals with dinosaur eggs and nests from around the world. There are reconstructed nests, “exploration centers”, and videos. Children also have an opportunity to touch real dinosaur bones, and to dig for eggs. (The eggs are almost certainly fakes, but there are also real dino eggs on display.) The total exhibit covers 5,000 square feet.
Edwards Mill Dam off Edwards Mill Road. Nice picture opportunity by an old mill dam. The mill is long gone. In season the houses opposite the dam have some of the most beautiful flowers on display in the city.
Lie to Me (Fox, 9pm) – NEW! The Lightman Group’s expertise is called into question when a woman plays cat-and-mouse with Cal while he’s checking for security leaks at an art museum prior to a major exhibition. Guest starring Tricia Helfer.
There’s a deal to look into as well – Combo membershipsto the Blank Park Zoo and the Living History Farms. Save a little and have the convenience of a one-time purchase. It’s always nice when you can feel fine about just spending an hour at the zoo or Living History farms, knowing you can come back any time and you didn’t lose the price of admission.
The zoo will have the spring Easter Egg Hunt kickoff, Eggstravaganza to begin the season, then introduce several new animals and buildings through the season. There will be a new sea lion and seal pool, new animals and a new look at the Australia Adventure exhibit, and new interactive exhibits, courtesy of John Deere.
So come on down to the Science Center and check out these displays and all of the other neat stuff that they have to offer. You’ll feel all the enthusiasm of when you were in science class in school.
