LOGAN – June and July are gone just like that, which means summer vacation is almost over. But before you pack away the sunscreen and replace it with packed backpacks, here are a handful of family-friendly events to enjoy before officially going back to school.
1. A free community art day at the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art on Saturday, August 10 is a great way to get out of the sun and enjoy crafts you don’t have to clean up at the end. The activity is based on some pieces from their upcoming Latinx exhibition. They will have materials for guests to put together personal life stories through accordion books, envelope books and zines. All ages are welcome to attend.
2. Get an up-close tour of a traveling treasures exhibit with a museum expert at Zion Bank’s family science night. Participants will get the chance to pan for rocks, minerals and dollar coins. They will also have fossils and shells to examine. This event is also free and will be at the Zions Bank at 133 E 1400 N in Logan on Monday, August 12.
3. The Cache Theatre Company’s show Frozen Jr. is an all-teen production featuring the talent of local valley teens ages 14-18. The show will run August 15-20 at the Utah Theatre. Tickets start at $12.
4. Stepping away from the arts, Mycon Gaming Convention is coming to town and is sure to be a big hit for the gamers in your family.
