What's On This Weekend: Feb 10-12

February 10, 2017

Valentine's Day has always been a holiday that I could take or leave. The romantic stuff on a designated day is not for me. But with kids, it's an absolute riot of a lovefest and I can't get enough. We adorn every single surface with hearts, make cupcakes with pink frosting and celebrate friendships with handmade cards. Who couldn't get behind that?

For all the heart-centric festivities (and plenty that are not), read on.



  • Celebrate Black History Month with special performances and delicious food in Benton Harbor

  • Catch a colorful, charming stage production of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in South Haven (through Saturday)

  • Enjoy a spectacular school-aged retelling of the Broadway version of Beauty & the Beast at Elkhart's Lerner Theatre
