Head to CHI Health Center to start planning your spring garden at the Omaha Home and Garden Expo this weekend. Get inspiration from the expo's beautiful blooming flower and landscaping displays, and ask all of your gardening questions of their Master Gardener's Panel. The expo is taking precautions to make your garden planning COVID-safe, including larger aisles, temperature checks, and required face masks. Get your tickets at the CHI Health Center box office to begin bringing spring to your home. 

Take a journey around the world with the Omaha Symphony this weekend. The musicians, under the direction of Ernest Richardson, will serenade you with music and scenes from your favorite Disney movies, including The Little Mermaid, Pocahontas, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Mulan, The Lion King, and Frozen! For a touchless experience, program notes will be provided digitally, and other health precautions, as always, will be in place. Book your tickets for this musical experience here.

The Durham Museum's latest, most rocking exhibit takes music-loving visitors on a tour of the history, science, sound, and culture behind the world's most popular instrument–the guitar! The exhibit uses performance video, models, and a display of more than 70 instruments (from antique to iconic) to educate us on the life and influence of the guitar. Make a reservation before your visit here. 

Join your book club and fellow Omaha book lovers for Omaha Public Library's first Virtual Book Bash! Log in to hear about new exciting books from library staff, have a chance to win literature-lover prizes, and get to chat virtually with fellow book lovers. End the night with a list of your favorite titles from the evening. Register on Crowdcast to attend this event from your favorite at-home reading nook. If you'd like a printed Book Bash guide, you can pick them up at your local OPL branch. 

Pay a visit to the Omaha Children's Museum anytime during this family fun weekend to celebrate, Paw Patrol style! All themed activities are included with regular admission and will feature character meet and greets, Make-Your-Own Pup Badge, Rocky's Recycling challenge, a Paw Patrol Boogie, and more. Get tickets for you and your Paw Patrollers this weekend here.
