Ten things to do for $10 this Memorial Day weekend, May 25-28, 2012
Footloose at Old South Gaylord Street (Saturday, free)
Enjoy the ridiculous dance scenes of Footloose tonight on the 1000 block of South Gaylord Street at Family Movie Night. There's free parking at South High School, and the evening will also include food, beverages, and the screening of an unannounced cartoon. Watch this classic tale of a town that outlaws dancing complete with cheesy choreography and the one rebel to bring rock n roll to town: Kevin Bacon.
Veterans Memorial Day Parade and Tribute at Civic Center Park (Saturday, free)
The real reason you have a three-day weekend is a somber one: to pay tribute to fallen soldiers. Recognize them at this Memorial Day parade and tribute, and don't forget to pack some tissues.
Playa Bazaar-B-Q at Fusion Factory (Saturday-Sunday, free)
Shop for handmade items from zombie dolls to cupcakes at this bizarre bazaar today. From a wide array of homemade goods to barbecued food to snack on, to music to dance to while you browse, this party/market should be a great opportunity to get out and buy goods you'd never find in traditional stores.
Denver Day of Rock at 16th Street Mall (Saturday, free)
Rock out at the five different stages this free concert has to offer. From national acts like TOTO to local favorites like Air Dubai, this rock rest should offer something for everyone. They're marketing the festival toward kids as well, so bring your little ones (but don't forget to bring ear plugs).
David Liebe Hart at Blast-O-Mat (Sunday)
Avant-garde weirdo David Liebe Hart will be playing his bizarre tunes about aliens, religion, email and more tonight at Blast-O-Mat. Hart is best known for his tone-deaf songs and puppetry on the Tim and Eric Awesome Show, and it's pretty amazing that he'll be playing the garage stage at this D.I.Y. venue. Don't miss this night of weirdness. Seriously, when was the last time you saw puppetry at a warehouse show?
