Best Bets for the Weekend: See all the stars

Lenexa Moonlight Bike Ride 2018 (file photo)

It’s the height of summer and it feels like we’ve finally worked out our rhythm. Our little one has been sleeping past 6:15 and we’ve even stayed out late enough to watch the fireflies. Maybe we’ll even make it to a fun event this weekend:

  • There is nothing not to like about Roald Dahl, am I right? Matilda the Musical begins Friday night at Theatre in the Park.
  • Music at the park, movies at the pool, movies at the park, parks at the pool – there are so many possible combinations of fun with these variables. How about music at the pool? Come see Battery Tour at Bluejacket Pool in Overland Park on Friday.
  • Our very own Mr. Stinky Feet takes of on a planetary adventure this weekend (read: sentences I never imagined writing). Mr. Stinky Feet’s Rock and Roll Galaxy will entertain at several Johnson County Library branches this weekend.
  • Lenexa has a bunch of fun activities happening this weekend, including:
    • Movie in the Park: Apollo will be showing Friday night at Buffalo Meadows Park.
    • A concert from the Community Orchestra on Saturday evening at the Community Covenant Church.
    • And my personal favorite, a Moonlight Bike Ride from Old Town Lenexa through the Meritex caves late Saturday night.
