Hello!
Tired of winter and ready for summer boating and outdoor fun? Head to the Boat, RV, and Vacation Show this Friday through Sunday at the RiverCenter! Now's your chance to shop boats for fishing, cruising, and water sports. Check out the multiple exhibits on resorts and fishing camps, fly-ins, vacations, and much more.
The subject of the Academy-nominated documentary Jules at Eight will be making an appearance at River Music Experience Wednesday!  Spend An Evening with Julian Lage and take in a night of jazz guitar by this Grammy-nominated virtuoso who's played with everyone from Santana to Martin Taylor.

The Twin Cities' Davina and the Vagabonds hit the stage at River Music Experience Friday night!  Davina's jazzy performance style never disappoints, and get there early to catch the Quad Cities' own Busted Chandeliers open the gig!  Head back to RME Saturday for the Kings CD Release Show with special guests Straight Up, Dividing the Masses, and Hello Ramona.

Plan to visit the Figge Art Museum for some quality family time during Portraits Family Day! Studio art activities, story time, refreshments, and more await on this  picture-perfect day. While you're there, peruse the new Young Artists at the Figge exhibition.  This week's exhibition highlights work from students from the Muscatine Community School District. Be sure to make it to the exhibition's reception Sunday, too!
Just can't get enough of weddings?  Check out the new Vintage Vows & Veils exhibit opening this Sunday at the German American Heritage Center. This exhibit, which features wedding traditions at the GAHC, will continue on until May 26th. Come check out unique, vintage photos, gowns, heirlooms, and more!

Enjoy writing original songs? Here's your chance to play, listen, and learn from leaders in the craft as they make music and talk about the process at River Music Experience. Head out for Songwriter's All-Orginial Open Mic this Saturday and hear from talented teenagers just starting out alongside polished musicians who make a living from their original material.
