As we are getting towards the warmer days of Spring, there are a ton of activities going on to get people out of the house.
Here are just a few things happening this weekend across the Sioux Empire.
The First Congregation Church is hosting a benefit concert on Saturday starting at 7:00 p.m. to benefit the Children's Miracle Network.
It will feature winning participants of the grant piano competition.
It will be the first time piano students from age 8 to 20 will get to showcase their talents in one place for charity. Free will offerings are being accepted and no tickets are required.
The Washington Pavilion also has a few big events going on Friday and Saturday.
Fir day kicks off the "Tornado Alley" display at the Wells Fargo Cinedome. Starting at noon, a tornado intercept vehicle will be on display in front of the Pavilion. All throughout the day, they are screening the movie "Tornado Alley" which takes viewers on an epic chase through the severe weather capitol of the world. The film's director Sean Casey will be on hand to talk about the movie and what it's like to be a storm chaser.
Also at the Pavilion, on Saturday they are celebrating National Ag Day. This is the 10th year for the event that promotes the ag industry.
