It tells the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons and includes well-known songs like "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Oh What a Night" and "Can't Take My Eyes Off You." Tickets are still available. Due to mature content, it may not be suitable for children.

    #3. Great War Memorial Balloon Race -- Get ready to float through the skies -- kind of. The annual Great War Memorial Balloon Race takes place in Little Rock all weekend long. The goal is to educate Arkansans about hot-air balloons while entertaining. There will also be music, kids activities, inflatables, and plenty of food. Tickets are 5 dollars. Kids 12 and under are free.

    #4. - Little Rock Farmer's Market --  Before the temperatures warm up on Saturday, get out and enjoy the Little Rock Farmer's Market. It opens at 7 a.m. You can check out the locally grown, farm fresh produce. Vendors are also selling works of art, specialty crafts and more. There's free parking behind the River Market Pavilions.

    #5. How Things Are Made at Museum of Discovery -- The Museum of Discovery's latest exhibit opens Saturday. It's called 'How People Make Things.' Every object in our world has a story of how it is made and this features that story by linking familiar childhood objects to a process of manufacturing--- that combines people, ideas and technology. The exhibit is inspired by the factory tour segments from the Mister Rogers' Neighborhood TV series.
