There’s a huge variety of stuff to do this weekend and a terrific opportunity to see the talent of our area citizens first hand. Davidson’s Dance & Desert should be a real treat of flair. Miss Fox Creek is guaranteed to be an authentic Uptown Girl, and for some real sparkle, Saturday’s Digistar Laser Fantasy could brighten anyone’s day.
