South Bend celebrates science at First Fridays


First Friday is invading downtown South Bend this weekend.  The theme this month is "Mad About Science." Many of the shops are offering science related activities.  The Dragon's Lair Dojo will teach people the science behind breaking a piece of wood.

Over at The Emporium they will feature the Latin band La Republica playing a show from 5:00 to 9:00pm. Also, if you stop at the Indiana Rug Company you may be a part of their "walking downtown" experiment.

Fiddler's Hearth is teaming with local amateur astronomers celebrating the premiere of "Cosmos" on FOX28 this Sunday.  They'll be offering star viewing through their telescopes on the sidewalk Friday evening, and again on Sunday.  Organizers say some of Jupiter's moons should be visible if the weather cooperates.

Fiddler's will be offering a viewing party including late night snacks and cash bar.  Tickets are $10 and support the AstroCamp at Camp Eberhard.

First Fridays takes place this evening from 5 to 9pm.
