I am so excited that Cirque Du Soleil’s OVO Show is coming to the Maverick Center this month! I was able to attend a blogger event where we learned more about the show and we even got to hold different bugs! Kim’s Cold Blooded Creatures taught us so much about all of her different bugs. We started off by making these colorful bug masks. My kids loved all the fun glitter and jewels and feathers. Then Kim had some time to teach us about each of the bugs she brought. I was surprised when my son wasn’t scared to hold all of them. I also decided to hold the tarantula, even though I am scared of spiders!
OVO is an “immersive touring show, teeming with life. Insects work, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy in motion. Their home is filled with biodiversity, beauty, action and moments of quiet emotion. The awestruck insects are intensely curious when a mysterious egg appears, representing the enigma and cycles of their lives.” (Excerpt from the Cirque Du Soleil website.)

I had the opportunity yesterday to attend the grand opening of the newest Deseret Industries in Springville, Utah.
**Update!! The turkey drive was moved to November 10th instead of the 8th to avoid conflict with Election Day!
If you missed my last post about Disney on Ice, read about it HERE.
Mark your calendars! On Thursday November 10th, Disney on Ice is partnering with The Utah Food Bank to host the ‘Turkey Tuesday’ Turkey Drive. Everyone will have the opportunity to donate one frozen turkey in exchange for two tickets to the show. Those turkeys will then be served this Thanksgiving to those in need by the food bank. Please note – turkeys must be frozen for the Utah Food Bank to accept them.
This is such a wonderful opportunity to support the food bank and those less fortunate and have a nice little thank you in return. Please think about donating for a great cause this Tuesday, November 8th!
