There's not enough time in the day to do everything on Saturday.
First, there's the Springer Opera House's Second annual Block Party. There's a kick-off event Friday evening for the art show and sale. Saturday, it's 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The block on 10th Street in front of the Springer, between First and Second avenues will be closed. Also, the northbound lane of the block of First Avenue between 10th and 11th streets will be closed.
There's going to be a lot of shenanigans going on, including the search for a dog to play Toto in "The Wizard of Oz." And a couple of dance routines that people can learn.

RiverCenter for the Performing Arts features Single Ticket Saturday from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Tickets are available for all the series, including the Broadway series.
There will be coffee, donuts and soft drinks in the morning. Around noon, there will be popcorn.
Just remember that if you don't buy single tickets for the Broadway shows on Saturday, you'll have to wait about six weeks before the show.
Also on Saturday, all tickets for Columbus Symphony Orchestra concerts are $15. The catch? You can only buy eight tickets. But what a deal!
And in the evening, the Liberty Theatre, 823 Eighth Ave., is holding the Fifth annual Libby Awards. These awards go to the best performances in shows at the Liberty during the 2009-10 season.
The dinner and awards show begin at 6 p.m.
Tickets are $25; $15 for either the dinner or show.
The best part of this one? I get to present an award.
So you can go to RiverCenter and buy tickets, walk across the street and hang out with the Springer gang. Then go home and take a nap. Get dressed up and go to the Liberty.
A fun, full day!
