There's a lot of fun things to do with the little ones this weekend, from star gazing to cat shows—the options are many. We picked our favorite ways to get the kids out of the house and into the world this weekend.


Star Gazing at Thanksgiving Point

You can go see the stars in the sky Friday night at the Star Gazing Party at Thanksgiving Point, thanks to Clark Planetarium educators, who will guide you through the night's sky.

Admission is free. 3003 N. Thanksgiving Way, Lehi, UT 84043. 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.


Spooky Saturday at Thanksgiving Point

Saturday's are spooky at Thanksgiving Point around Halloween. Spooky Saturdays: Spooktacular allows your kids to meet Thanksgiving Point's own form of monsters, dinosaurs! Bring the kids, and introduce them to their favorite pre-historic heroes!

Dottie and Chris Miles gallery at Access Art

Bring your kids to see the wonderful art of Dottie and Chris Miles.  Their wonderfully creative paintings with vivid colors will capture the imaginations and attention of your little ones.
