Oh man I love Wednesdays. Not only does it mean the week is halfway over (ugh, thank heavens!), it also means there is PLENTY to do in this little town of ours. Peery Egyptian Theater is showing the premiere of Warren Miller’s film “Flow State,” & WSU is continuing their Asian Film Series. If sitting down for a movie doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, there are countless Halloween events going on; I personally think the showing of ZOMBIELAND at the library sounds rad. Tis the season for all things scary.. Head over to a haunted house after & experience some serious frights! Also don’t forget the dance parties held every Wednesday at Union Station..Learn to country dance & then swing your partner, dosey-do!
Whatever you do get out there & enjoy Ogden, & if you catch your evening activities in a few photos, use the hashtag #indieogden on twitter & Instagram to see if you get featured for our next photo compilation! Happy Hump Day!
