Lucha Libre and Laughs is back at the Oriental Theater with four pandemic friendly shows this weekend. If you’re in the mood to learn something, head to the Museum of Nature and Science for Dogs! A Science Tail. Learn the science and evolutionary history that brought you your favorite quarantine canine companion. Or go to Museo de las Americas to learn about southern Colorado’s history through with La Misión: Made of Earth and Spirit.

Tuesday will be the second official Cruise Down Fedz Day, which Denver City Council officially recognized last year. On Sunday, celebrate the North Denver tradition by joining or watching the cruise. Festivities that celebrate North Denver’s Chicano roots and car culture kick off at Barnum Park and roll over to La Raza Park.
