From free or inflatable workouts to local exhibits and shows, here are the events we’re looking forward to this weekend.

Beauty and the Beast
Disney’s Academy Award-winning film is brought to life on stage at Starlight Theatre. The lavish sets and musical numbers will entertain adults and kids alike. Relive the tale of Belle and her Beast starting at 10 a.m. Tickets can be purchased here.
Insane Inflatable 5K
Get ready to run through an extensive obstacle course of inflatables at Kansas Speedway beginning at 8:30 a.m. Saturday.
