This weekend may be a good chance to put that yard work off for another week. Let the leaves fall to the ground and take your family out to one of these three events that can take you from the sea to the stars.

E.T. Grand Rapids Symphony

The symphony is back with another big screen event. Director Steven Spielberg's heartwarming classic, "E.T. The Extraterrestrial" will be played start to finish on a giant HD screen while the Grand Rapids Symphony plays the movie's Academy Award winning score.

The music and the movies start at 8 p.m. Friday night. Tickets start at $18, and cost $5 for students.


Kidabaloo is returning to Grand Rapids for a second year. This fun filled indoor festival offers exciting games, bouncy houses, rides, musical entertainment, and even a special visit from Jeff Musial The Animal Guy.

The action takes place at DeVos Place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m on Saturday. Tickets are $5 for adults and $7 for kids, which includes access to all events including Jeff Musial's Animal Show at 2 p.m.

Grand Rapids Public Museum Whale Exhibit

Can you name the Earth's largest living creature? With the Grand Rapids Public Museum's latest exhibit, you could immerse yourself into the home of the giants of the deep.

There is something for old and young alike in a blend of science, storytelling, and interactivity. Huge whale skeletons, life size models, and a replica of a blue whale's heart that your kids can actually walk through.

The exhibit is $2 for member adults and children, $13 for non-member adults and $8 for non-member children.
