Movies in Morden

Remember the good old days, when a summer night was often spent watching a flick at the drive-in theatre? Take a drive with the top down -- or maybe just the windows -- about 90 minutes south of Winnipeg to Morden, where dusk on the weekend means a movie at the Stardust Drive-In Theatre. Tonight, they're showing Muppets Most Wanted. Of course, you must stop at the canteen. You could just get popcorn, but what you should really get is a deep-fried Pizza Pop and a swamp water. Visit stardustmorden.tripod.com for more information.

Salsa Sunday

Today is one of the Salsa Sundays at The Forks, a musical evening that is sure to spice up your night. Latin bands, DJs, international guests and local groups are performing, and you can step into the rhythm yourself by trying out the dance classes. It all happens under the canopy from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Shameless art show

Artbeat Studio is a facility that provides free studio space for local artists living with mental illness. The nine artists who most recently completed the six-month recovery program will have their work featured in Shameless, Artbeat Studio's 19th biannual exhibition. The show's free opening reception is Thursday at 7 p.m., and you can enjoy live entertainment and hors d'oeuvres while you take in the personal journeys held in each piece of artwork. You'll find Artbeat Studio at 4-62 Albert St., and you'll find more info on the studio at artbeatstudio.ca.

Rife with reptiles

Snakes, geckos, bearded dragons -- are these critters your cup of tea? Then the Manitoba Reptile Breeder's Expo probably will be, too. There, you can find out all you'd like to know about your favourite reptilian critters. The expo goes today until 5 p.m. at the Victoria Inn Hotel and Convention Centre at 180 Wellington Ave. Admission is $10, kids 12 and under get in free. For more info, go to www.theMRBE.com.

Frozen fun

"I'm bored." It's been, what, two weeks since school has been out? But you've probably already heard the kids utter those words. There's no better way to beat the heat than with a nice, cold glass of lemonade, and there's no better way to keep the kids busy than with a lemonade stand. But let's up the ante here. Try freezing the lemonade in ice-pop moulds and selling the juice as delicious ice pops. Or, to make fudge pops, make a batch of chocolate pudding and freeze that instead.

Anime admirers

Are you a fan of manga and anime? Then you should find your way to Sir William Stephenson Library at 2 p.m. Friday. Whether you like to read, draw or both, you can come to discuss your favourite manga and anime, learn manga-drawing techniques, and more. The Manga Club is for ages 13 to 17. Call 204-986-7096 to register.

Aqua activities

When water is as far away as turning on the tap, it can be hard to fully appreciate how precious it is to our planet. Oak Hammock Marsh Interpretive Centre's Water Festival will help teach you the importance of water. On Saturday, there will be interactive stations set up. You can pick up a passport and take part in the fun water-related activities while learning about water conservation. Once your passport is complete, you can hand it in for a chance to win some prizes.
