MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – It’s almost the weekend, so let’s get planning. And if the weather doesn’t have you feeling like a hermit, there are plenty of options for entertainment around town.

Crashed Ice
Crashed Ice is back at the Minnesota State Capitol this weekend, bringing more than 100,000 spectators to the high speed, downhill races. This is the second leg of the world tour, bringing athletes from all over the country, Canada, France, Germany and beyond. Not that there will be no public parking on site. Folks are encouraged to carpool to parking ramps and shuttle locations.

Midwest Black History Expo
The Midwest Black History Expo returns to St. Paul’s RiverCentre and has expanded to two days: Friday and Saturday. It’s the largest Black History Month celebration in Minnesota. The family-friendly expo is open to the public and will provide information on black history, culture and various Afro-centric products.

Eelpout Festival
Want Some Really Unique Winter Olympic Action? Don’t fly to Sochi. Head to the 2014 Eelpout Festival in Walker. It’s three days of Olympic-style competitions that are fun and fishy. Nothing screams America quite like “everyday athletes” competing in Pout Curling, Pout Relay, Pout Luge and the ever-popular Eelpout Beer Pong Tourney.
