10 CNY Events Showering Down This Weekend

Movies, musicals and more fun mayhem in CNY.

There is a lot going on this in and around Syracuse and Central New York so I had to painfully narrow the list down to a minuscule number.

It’s OK. We’ll be fine. There is just too much to do.

There are a lot of stage productions going on this weekend, and there are only a few listed. For the fashion-inspired, literary curious, musically excitable, comedy enthusiastic and just a local or selfless community members: All I have to say is, have fun!
