Well, it’s Friday. That means it’s time to prepare ourselves for a totally awesome weekend in Kokomo. Here’s our top 3 picks for a great weekend
1) Discover Fun at the library
Get your future engineers to “Discover Fun: Discover Tech Exhibit” from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 25 at the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library South Branch.
It’s opening day for the exhibit that features hands-on activities, 3-D printer demonstration, visits with Purdue Polytechnic Institute Kokomo and a whole lot more. The library is one of only country — and the only Indiana library — to host the Discover Tech: Engineers Make a World of Difference traveling exhibit.
2) “Passing Notes” performance
The Kokomo Civic Theatre’s February production of “Passing Notes” will be presented this weekend.
The play is an original work written and directed by Kokomo actor, musician, and KCT board member Joe Cameron. Based on real life events, a man tells the story of his first love through old, hand-written notes that he and his girlfriend wrote to one another. Together they discover love, experience the joy of infatuation, they laugh and fight, share a first kiss, learn to dance, and most importantly they forge an unbreakable friendship.
Showtimes are 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at Havens Auditorium, Indiana University Kokomo.
3) Colosseum Combat
It promises to be an exciting evening as Colosseum Combat takes over the Kokomo Event & Conference Center from 7 to 9 p.m. Feb 25. The evening will be a Pro/Am Mixed Martial Arts event and is billed for all ages.
