Looking for a lighthearted way to welcome the weekend? Stop by the Carson Valley Museum and Cultural Center 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. Saturday to partake in their Giant Bubbles on the Green event.

Museum Activity Director Dennis Little said museum staff will be outside creating bubbles and leading a number of bubble-themed games for the kids. One popular favorite is Bubble Pop, where children are invited to chase the bubbles and try to pop as many as they can.

“As soon as you make (the bubbles), the kids go wild,” Little said.

There will be lots of other fun ways to explore the museum on Saturday, as the event also includes miniature golf, a scavenger hunt, and a number of indoor games.

Family Days are held at the museum the first Saturday of every month except for July. Each month features a different theme and there is no cost to attend. In August, look for an agricultural day event.

“The education directors at the museum always come up with creative ideas,” Little said.

The museum is located at 1477 Main St. in Gardnerville. For more information, visit www.historicnv.org or call 775-782-2555.
