Rain is forecast for this weekend, but that needn’t stop you from doing something.
Here are some rainproof activities for some weekend fun.
Cirque Du Soleil – Varekai
For more than two decades, this Canadian import and Las Vegas mainstay has been entertaining audiences worldwide. This time, the troupe is bringing the Greek myth of Icarus to the big top with Cirque Du Soleil – Varekai.
Icarus, who flew to close to the sun and melted his wings, but in this incarnation, instead of drowning in the Aegean sea, he falls into an exotic forest filled with wonderful plants and bizarre animals.
Show times are 7:30 p.m. Friday; 4 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday; 1:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. Sunday at the Valley View Casino Center (formerly known as the Sports Arena). Tickets range from $25 to $160.
Fragile Waters at the Maritime Museum
Living in San Diego, we know how precious water is as a resource but a new exhibit at the Maritime Museum asks us to think of water as more than a resource.
Fragile Waters calls attention to water, the critical resource, in all its beauty and power. This exhibit features over 100 inspiring black-and-white photographs by three iconic photographers and environmentalists, Ansel Adams, Ernest Brooks II and Dorothy Kerper Monnelly.
The exhibit opens Sunday and runs through Sept. 15 and is included in the price of admission to the museum.
Color in Motion 5K
The rain is no excuse not to get some exercise in. If you need some motivation, grab a group of friends and join Color in Motion 5K this Saturday at Qualcomm Stadium.
The run gives you a chance to be active, social and a little wacky. You just show up wearing white and they will do the rest. As you sprint, jog, waddle, or leisurely stroll along you will be bombarded with bright colors that transform a group of ordinary runners into a moving rainbow. The color that you will be showered in is completely safe and washes off easily.
Best of all, some of the proceeds go to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of North County. Registration is $50 per person.
World Thinking Day
Want to get your children exposed to the world around them? World Thinking Day on Saturday at the San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum is the perfect way to do it.
A joint venture with KPBS and the Girl Scouts of San Diego, kids will explore world cultures, enjoy traditional performances, eat some ethnic food, and do interactive activities from around the world.
The event goes from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Children under 18 years of age are free. Admission is $6 for adults.
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
Let the San Diego Junior Theatre bring you the world of Narnia. Based on The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S.Lewis, the play follows the four Pevensie children as they stumble upon an old wardrobe and discover the magical world of Narnia.
The show opens Friday and runs through March 15. Show times are 7 p.m. Fridays and 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets range from $11 to $12.
