Here's what's going on in town this weekend

Good day and happy Valentine's Day.

It might be a bit of a drag to have a holiday fall on a Sunday, but local groups and businesses have put together a wide array of activities for both romantics and non-romantics alike. City Pulse compiled some of these happenings in the 2016 Valentine's Day event guide.
