Not sure what to do in Denver this weekend?

We've got six ideas:

πŸ¦‹ Head to Butterfly Pavilion for Living Lights, featuring biofluorescent invertebrates, glowing exhibits, a firefly forest with aerial artists, a dance party and more.

πŸ’ Cheer on the Colorado Avalanche β€” who are on fire right now β€” as they face off against the Tampa Bay Lighting Saturday evening at Ball Arena.

πŸ«” Bring your appetite to Cerveceria Colorado on Saturday, when the brewery will partner with Kahlo's Mexican Restaurant for tamale and beer pairings. Tickets are $25.

🎁 Finish your holiday shopping at the Belleview Station Holiday Bazaar, where more than 50 local vendors will be set up on Saturday and Sunday, alongside food trucks, holiday-themed pop-up bars and live music.

πŸƒ Don your tackiest holiday jumper (as the Brits would say) for the Christmas Sweater 5K run/walk on Sunday at Washington Park. Participants get a medal and shirt, and food vendors will be stationed at the finish line.

πŸͺ‘ Stop by Grandma's House on Sunday for their weekly Foul-Mouthed Cross Stitch, where patrons have access to all the cross-stitching supplies needed to make a funny curse-filled creation.
