Deathstar Watermelon - Photo by: Joi

This weekend, Arizona brings out some big monsters and blows up watermelons for you. No, really.

Not a lot on my radar this weekend, but what it may lack in quantity I thinkĀ  it makes up for in bizarre explodiness.

Monsters! [Phoenix]

  • The Cade Gallery is putting on a giant monster art show.
  • “Slithering, skulking, stomping, smashing!”
  • Start fleeing in terror at 7pm.
  • Get your details.

Let’s Blow Up Some Watermelons! [Phoenix]

  • Bring a watermelon down to the Arizona Science Center and they will blow it up with fireworks for you.
  • Seriously.
  • Plus they’ll explain the pyrotechnics and teach you about fireworks.
  • Starts at 2pm all weekend through the 4th.
  • Find the details tucked away in the corner of their site.

I feel sort of obligated to make a Ghallager reference at this point, but I”ll refrain.

Have a great 4th of July weekend everyone.

As always, feel free to mention what I may have missed in the comments so we all know.
