Top 5 things to do this weekend

Perhaps the best thing to do this weekend, May 3-5, is to get outdoors and enjoy it. Or clean up the yard and mow the grass.

Besides all that "fun," here's a few indoor activities to enjoy:

(1) Family Fishing Class - 10-11:30 a.m. Saturday at Loutit District Library, 407 Columbus Ave., Grand Haven. Learn the best places to take your family fishing in the Grand Haven area, along with the best baits and techniques that produce lots of fish and lasting memories. Russ Gabel, director of Freewater Experience, will lead the class. With a long history of children and student ministry, and years of experience teaching fishing classes through the YMCA, Gabel will share entertaining videos and stories, fun games, and great information. The program is free, but registration is required. To register, visit loutitlibrary.org.

Tickets are $21 for adults, and $19 for senior citizens and students. This classic of the Broadway stage tells the story of the charming rogue Professor Harold Hill, the town librarian Marian Paroo, and the denizens of River City, Iowa — circa 1912. Upon his arrival in town, Harold sets out to organize a boys' band and sell instruments and uniforms to the naive locals before skipping town with the cash. Or will he?
