A day at Moorhead’s Hjemkomst Center is a perfect way to pass a Monday.

Monday: A Day at the Hjemkomst Center

Two springtime exhibits showcasing both the old and new are in full swing across the Red at Moorhead’s Hjemkomst Center.

“Coming of Age: The 1968 Generation” displays the colorful counterculture of America, and, in particular, Minnesota teens.

This presentation, made possible by the Minnesota Historical Society Traveling Exhibits Program, showcases days of yore, while the Fargo-Moorhead Visual Artists’ “The BIG Art Show” celebrates today’s culture.

The FMVA will fill the lower level gallery with its local flare, including opportunities to meet FMVA craftspeople themselves.

FMVA’s display continues until June 1. “Coming of Age” shows until June 21.

Tuesday: Walk this Way

Springtime walks around town help shake off a Fargoan’s hibernation blues.

Enjoy a crisp evening stroll around Fargo with the Walk This Way campaign. The two-mile casual walk starts at 7 p.m. Tuesday in Rendezvous Park in West Fargo.

The two-month campaign sponsored by the City of Fargo picks a new path every week.

Online registration is requested for first-time walkers.

Wednesday: Make Your Own Rain Barrel Workshop

Reduce water waste and pollution by creating your own rain barrel 6-8 p.m. Wednesday in Lindenwood Park’s main shelter.

A $74 fee includes supplies needed to create an empty 55-gallon drum.

The event, hosted by River Keepers, encourages conservation of water and fighting runoff, the latter of which can carry pollutants into the river.

Dress for the April weather.

Thursday: “Welcome to Night Vale” at the Fargo Theatre 

Night Vale is a fictitious desert town where conspiracies are commonplace.

A man named Cecil reports through community radio the surreal happenings of Night Vale, which ranges from PTA meetings ending in bloodshed to worshiping ominous glow clouds.

Interesting is an understatement.

Along with releasing podcasts twice a month, “Welcome to Night Vale” brings its show on tour, stopping 7 p.m. Thursday at the Fargo Theatre.

Joining the show, and perhaps the program’s infamous weather report, is Mary Epworth, an eclectic British singer-songwriter.

Tickets are going for $25. The Fargo Theatre is at 314 Broadway N.
