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. Living Legends

Celebrate Native American, Latin American and Polynesian heritage through BYU Living Legends’ dance performance. The show is Friday and Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $12 for adults and $8 for students. Read “Living Legends: 8 things to know before you go” to make the show even more enjoyable.

 

2. Cougarettes

Usually, these girls are secondary to the sports team they are dancing for, but in this performance, they finally get to be the center of attention. The BYU Cougarettes, who claimed the 2013 College Dance Team National Champions in Hip Hop and Open Dance, will show just how talented they are in their full-length program at the Covey Center. The show runs Friday and Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee Saturday at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $12-$15.

 

3. “Little Women”

Bringing together the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott with beautiful music, BYU takes on the Broadway musical version of “Little Women” this weekend. Join Jo March and her sisters as they learn about life through their adventures and growing up. Show times include Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. with a Saturday matinee at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $8 for adults and $6 for students.

 

4. “Freezin’ for a Reason”

Saratoga Springs and Lehi Police Departments are teaming up to take the plunge Saturday morning in Pelican Bay Marina. The 6th annual Polar Plunge raises money for Special Olympics Utah. If you are brave enough to take the freezing plunge, it costs $50 for students and $60 for adults. Register here. People can watch the event, which has registration at 9 a.m. and the plunge at 10:30 a.m., for free.

 

5. BYU basketball vs. Portland

Catch your BYU men’s basketball team for the last time this season at home. After a tough loss to Portland a month ago (the game went into triple overtime), the Cougars are ready to get revenge. Tipoff is at 7 p.m. at the Marriott Center. Tickets cost $5-$20.
