1. If you are looking for something to do this weekend one thing I suggest is taking a trip to Ennis to look at all of the Bluebonnets that are starting to bloom. For locations and a map, visit the Ennis Convention and Visitors Bureau's website at www.visitennis.org. The staff can be reached at 972-878-4748. — Andrew Branca

2. Interested in seeing some history of Ellis County that has been recently discovered? Then you might want to take a trip to the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas. The museum features a Columbian Mammoth, known as Ellie May, which was discovered in a gravel pit in Ellis County. The museum is open 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday - Saturday and Noon - 5 p.m. Sunday. It is located at 2201 N. Field St. in Dallas. For ticket prices go to www.perotmuseum.org. — Andrew Branca

3. SAGU Theatre presents “Hello, Dolly” this weekend at the Hagee Communication Center, March 24-26. The show revolves around professional meddler and matchmaker, Dolly Levi, who is determined to marry miserly half-a-millionaire, Horace Vandegelder, in the turn-of-the-century New York. The comedic Broadway musical is filled with witty banter, classic mix-ups, and unforgettable songs - a sure hit the whole family will enjoy. Tickets and show times can be found at sagu.brushfireapp.com/tickets. — Chelsea Groomer
