Looking for some Memorial Day weekend fun? Check out these upcoming events …

  • Trade your surfboard for a tube at NLand Surf Park’s Float the Moat event from 1-7 p.m. Saturday. For $15 per hour, you can loll around on a tube while you watch a show that includes belly dancing and live music. Drinking is allowed before (but not during) tubing for ages 21 and up only (not if you plan to surf afterward, though).  The park is located at 4836, E Hwy 71. For more information go here.

  • Rather climb? Thursday night is date night at Crux Climbing Center. Bring a date and climb two  for $20. (Normal day pass rates are $22 per person.) For more information go here. The climbing gym will also host a “Murph workout” on Monday. This special workout, one of the most famous CrossFit workouts and often celebrated on Memorial Day, was a favorite of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, who was killed in Afghanistan in 2005. Warmup begins at 10:30 a.m., the workout runs from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and a cool down and refreshments will follow. For more information go here.
