Out and About in Greater Peoria: Five Points Fridays, kitten shower and DIY Highland cow planter

Here are 3 things to do for the weekend of May 17-19, 2023, curated by WCBU's Camryn Cutinello. You can find more coverage on our Out & About - Arts & Music page or by subscribing to WCBU's Weekend Fanfare email newsletter, which goes out every Friday.

Listen: Tonight, The Holdouts take the stage for Five Points Fridays in Washington. There will be food trucks and activities for kids starting at 5 p.m. The Holdouts start at 6 p.m. The event is free, and there will be a cash bar and a charity raffle. Be sure to stop by the WCBU booth to say hi and enter our giveaway!

Play: It’s raining… kittens? This Sunday at the Peoria Playhouse, it’s a kitten shower. Head to the art room to meet some adorable kittens from Stray Animals Midwest Shelter (SAMS). While you play with the kittens, learn more about the importance of spaying/neutering and hear about foster opportunities. The event goes from 12 to 4 p.m.

Create: Also Sunday at Art at the Bodega, make your very own Highland cow clay planter. This class will walk you through each step of the process so you leave with a planter that perfectly captures the Highland cow’s signature shaggy coat and long horns. The $40 ticket includes instruction, materials and tools. The class starts at 1 p.m.
