It’s Friday. The sun is back. The weekend waits. Here are five directions you'll want to head if you’re looking for art, faith, hope and love this weekend.
Of course, this is all in addition to visiting me at the Bleeding Heart Art Space between 11 AM and 3 PM on Saturday. Am I right?

Inside Out, outside
'Tis the season for outdoor movies! Tonight you can head over to Ellerslie Road Baptist Church for an outdoor screening of Inside Out, complete with food trucks! Activities and eats at 6 PM. Movie starts at 8. If you haven’t seen Inside Out, you need to. Just trust me on that. And who can beat outdoors and free?

PINKY: The Little Outlier
Don’t fear the fall. Celebrate the changing seasons with a beautiful festival from Edmonton’s Chinese community.
I suppose this event is neither little, nor an outlier, as it takes place in the heart of Edmonton at Churchill Square. But it’s the first year I’ve heard of it. You probably knew all about this already, so just call me late to the party.
And it does sound like a beautiful party.
"Imagine the waters in front of City Hall full of Wishing Boats holding the wishes and blessings of Edmontonians! And this is after you’ve had a memorable afternoon of mooncake, martial arts, riddles, lantern making and much more!”
