Something for the calendar, y’all: On May 12 and 13, Sister Cities Park is hosting a “storybook weekend”, which will include live entertainment and music, as well as readings, crafts, face-painting, balloon art and more.

Another heads up: Here’s a chance to see the PA Ballet — specifically, the young professionals in PA Ballet II, who perform regionally — for an extremely reasonable price.

(Aimed at kids 4 and up.)
