The Shortlist: What To Do in Boulder: 10/7-10/9

Happy Tuesday, Boulderites! The blustery chill has set in and the sweaters have officially come out for the season. Get out and about this weekend, and go for a stroll around Downtown Boulder. Even just between Arapahoe and Walnut, Boulder has a great weekend of activities lined up for you!

1. Cult Classics at Central Park: The Big Lebowski

The City of Boulder will be putting on free movies during Fridays in October in Central Park. This Friday’s flick is going to be The Big Lebowski (1998), starring Jeff Bridges and John Goodman. Head down to Central Park at 6:30 pm to lay down your blankets and chairs, and also enjoy some tasty bites from Sancho’s Mexican Food Cart. The film will start 7:30 pm, just as the sun goes down.

2. Family Play Festival

Saturday morning is all about the kids at the Boulder Public Library. From 10 am to 12 pm, families with little kids are welcome to join in activities promoting early literacy, as well as arts and crafts. Doors are open to children ranging from infancy through age five. Show your little ones some love and learning this weekend.

3. A History of Visual Arts in Boulder (HOVAB)

End you weekend with a trip to the Dairy to celebrate A History of Visual Arts in Boulder. One of the exhibits will display works from twenty-three different artists who have lived in Boulder at any point during their careers. The Criss-Cross Collective exhibition will also be on display showcasing a popular art movement during the 1970s in Boulder. Additionally, there will be an exhibit featuring The Front Range Women in Visual Arts Founders. What an exciting way to showcase different perspectives of Boulder throughout the years.
