Sun or snow — we never know what we’ll get in Utah Valley — here are five weekend events taking place in Utah Valley’s backyard.
Ready for takeoff? This hands-on event blasts off for space and science exploration. Any “astronaut in training” will have a chance to launch rockets, stargaze in the planetarium, view amazing physics demonstrations and more.
When: May 19 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Where: Eyring Science Center, BYU
Provo River Race
Take us to the river this weekend. The first whitewater kayak race on the Provo River includes two competitions: the slalom and boater cross. Spectators can observe the competition as well as buy a treat from one of the vendors.
When: May 19 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Where: Bridal Veil Falls
Cost: Free for spectators, $12 per race for participants or $20 for both
Leave the car at home — this drive-in was made for bikin’. As part of National Bike Month, Provo Bicycle Collection is hosting a Bike-in Movie night. Ride your bike and watch “Rising from Ashes,” a film about Rwandans who used the bicycle to recover from genocide.
When: May 19 from 9–11 p.m.

Prepare for the gossip. “Steel Magnolias” is layered in southern charm (and sass) at Truvy’s beauty parlor, a place where six women share the bittersweet moments of their lives.
