Got kids? Got grandkids? Feel like a kid? Then get on over to the carnival at Le Gran Plaza–4200 S.Freeway, at I-35 and Seminary–and have a ball. Lots of rides, including a great ferris wheel that lets you look out over the Fort and lots of food, and of course, a chance to lose beaucoup bucks trying to win your sweetie a big teddy bear.

It’s a no-brainer for something to do this weekend. But you’ve got to hurry as Sunday is the last day. Between now and then it’s open afternoons, and all day Saturday.

And just because I’m talking about the plaza, if you have not been there you’re missing out on something pretty special. The mall is gigantic, with a lot of the stores having an Hispanic flavor, but whether or not you’re shopping for a fabulous quinceanera dress, you’ll just love the place.
