It's NCAA basketball tournament time! Come out to Mackey Arena at Purdue University this Saturday, March 17 for the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament, 1st Round. The fierce competition takes place at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. We are cheering on the 2012 Big 10 Tournament Champions, our Lady Boilermakers this tournament season. Boiler Up!
In Lafayette, Indiana, this weekend enjoy the comedy, "Rally 'Round The Flag, Boys!" performed by the Christus Homines Drama Troupe at the Long Center for the Performing Arts. This wacky comedy is set in a quiet suburban town in Connecticut where the U.S. Army establishes a missile base and the town folks are not happy. Incidents such as an "accidental" missile going off, keep the audience entertained and laughing!
And don't forget, Saturday is St. Patty's Day! The 7th Annual St. Patrick's Day Volunteer Marching Parade is again taking place at the John T. Meyer's Pedestrian Bridge. Help support Greater Lafayette's Irish Tradition! Volunteers and spectators are welcome. Don't forget to wear green or you may be pinched!
