Glad You Asked: Carnaval, Pilgrim Feasts and Ice Skating



Dear GYA, The Philadelphia 76ers are pretty pissed off that I was injured while bowling last week. I'm upset, too; my haircut hasn't seen the court since I was traded last summer. Have you seen this thing? It's beautiful -- man, it's like Stewart from MADtv grew a Chia Pet on his head.--- Well, I guess bowling is out of the question for a while -- anything else happening tonight where I can show off this new cut? -Andrew Bynum 

Andrew, you're way too injury prone to do anything that involves standing. But since you want to show off your new 'do, here are a few options for tonight:

Brigham City Museum's annual Carnaval celebration will be going down this evening. The event has always attracted party fanatics with its loud music, festival trickery, and flamboyant costumes. This year, the Brigham City Museum will feature eight countries in which Canaval is celebrated, with lavishly eclectic traditions from each showcased. The featured countries include: Bolivia, Italy, Mexico, Spain, Switzerland, Tobago, Trinidad and the United States.

The Eat Like A Pilgrim Feast will be happening at Thanksgiving Point. Recognized by the New York Times in 2011 as one of the top Thanksgiving re-enactments in the country, historical figures will transport guests into early America through authentic fare, décor and ambience. Educators from the Alpine School District and historians from the Colonial Heritage Foundation will portray influential figures from the era including Governor William Bradford, religious leader William Brewster and Squanto. The feast starts at 6:30.
