Opening Feb. 10 at Muskegon Community College Carr Fles Planetarium: “Incoming.”

It’s a journey out to the asteroids and comets and a look at how they have shaped life on earth over the years. Narrated by George Takei and I hope to hear an “oh my” or two.

Cost: Free

Thursdays take a free tour of the Muskegon Museum of Art! Come out and take a walk thru the museum and see it. There is a huge exhibit coming this May, The North American Indian by Edward S Curtis.

Feb. 18 it’s the Best of Second City at the Frauenthal. Think of the list of stars that are part of the historic Second City comedy troop!

Cost: $26-41

Feb. 23 through 25, Dancing with the Local Stars at the Holiday Inn Downtown Muskegon.

This event has raised $629,000 in the eight years it’s been going on. The Womend Division Chamber of Commerce uses the money to benefit food pantries. This is one of Muskegon’s biggest events all winter.

Cost: $40
