It’s the weekend at last. Don’t get caught stuck on the couch when there are so many activities happening around Utah Valley. Here are five events sure to liven up your weekend:

1. Cornbelly’s corn maze

The air is brisk, the harvest is here and the trees are changing colors signaling the start of fall, which means one activity is back — corn mazes. Cornbelly’s officially opens its corn maze at Thanksgiving Point tonight, Oct. 4th. Get lost with friends as you find your way through the colored maze dedicated to the BYU and Utah rivalry. Admission to the maze costs $8.95-$10.95 and is open between 10 a.m. and 11 p.m on Friday and Saturday. Learn more about activities at Cornbelly’s here.

2. Rooftop Concert Series

The last 2013 Rooftop Concert ran into a road bump with the weather forecast promising rain and snow on Friday. In order to still hold the show, organizers moved the show across the street to the Provo Marriott Hotel ballroom at 101 West 100 N. Come listen to The Lower Lights, Parlor Hawk and The National Parks for free with a roof safe over your head. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the concert starts at 7:30 p.m.

3. “The Unexpected Guest”

The Covey Center for the Arts presents Agatha Christie’s “The Unexpected Guest.” Join Michael Starkwedder as he tries to solve a murder he walked in on when his car broke down. The obvious answer to this mystery might seem like it is right in front of you, but you’ll have to investigate the other people in the house if you are going to beat Starkwedder to the correct conclusion. Tickets cost $12-$14 and the show starts at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday night in the Brinton Theater.

4. Flute Fantasies

Let the flute music fill the air. This flute concert with guest artist Conor Nelson should “(demonstrate) extravagant technique, broad stylistic range, and penetrating musicality,” according to the UVU Music Department website. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 4, in the Science Building Auditorium on UVU’s campus.

5. Hobble Creek Barn Boutique

Why settle for a girl’s night when you can have a whole day? On both Friday and Saturday, the shops are open in The Historic Mapleton Town Hall. Grab your friends and update your fall wardrobe. Admittance into the boutique is $1; all of the money at the door will be donated to Judy Davis, one of the vendors going through chemotherapy for breast cancer.
