Well, with Easter being this weekend — and my birthday is this Sunday too by the way — there really isn’t too much going on in our neck of the woods this weekend.

However, hopefully the weather will hold up for you car enthusiasts as the Space City Cruisers present their annual Spring Car Show on Saturday at League City Park, FM 518 and Park Avenue, in League City.

The annual event, which benefits the Vicki Gibson Scholarships and Texas Lions Camp, is a county favorite and will feature cars in all classes including imports and motorcycles.

Registration is $30 per car and class, and will be from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Goody bags and T-shirts will be given to the first 150 entrants.

To sign up, call 281-332-4131 or 281-338-1218 or visit www.spacecitycruisers.com.

“Dreamgirls,” which debuted on Broadway in 1981, is filled with R&B and gospel-tinged tunes, energetic choreography and, of course, stunning vocals.

Free Houston Symphony concert

The Houston Symphony will perform its first free concert at Discovery Green at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at 1500 McKinney St. in Houston.

Celebrating its centennial season, the symphony and Discovery Green, which is celebrating its sixth birthday, too, will join forces to create a unique outdoor event.

The symphony will be led by Concertmaster Frank Huang.

And before the concert starts, attendees can take part in tango demonstrations by the Argentine Tango School of Houston, enjoy tango music by Rene Casarsa and sample free wine provided by Spec’s — how cool is that?

‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’

When Cyndi Lauper sang “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” many, many years ago, who knew it would become a mantra for women everywhere?

Well, the local nonprofit Independence Village is hoping Galveston County women everywhere want to do just that.

They’re inviting all women to its fourth annual Girls’ Night Out event, which will be from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. April 25 at the Charles T. Doyle Convention Center, 2010 Fifth Ave. N., in Texas City.

Tickets are only $50 and the proceeds will benefit the Independence Village, which is an assisted-living facility for residents with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Attendees will get to “sip, dine and shop” at the annual event that is for a great cause.

So, if you want to go or if you would just like to donate, call 409-935-4335 and get your ticket today.
