Even if it is blistering hot outside, as soon as school busses start running and the kids head back to school, summer feels like it’s over. Embrace the beginnings of autumn with one of these Albuquerque events. From homegrown theater to sleeping with the fish, there’s something for everyone this weekend!

Follow the lives of six people whose stories intersect, in “Trust,” a contemporary dramatic comedy.  The play is presented by The Filling Station, and will run at 8 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays through August 29. Tickets are $20 for adults.

Spend the night with the fish! Begin an unforgettable slumber party with an evening of learning, games, crafts, movie watching, and more.  Aquarium Overnight allows guests to sleep next to the sharks in an unforgettable viewing of the aquarium. Pre-registration is required, and children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Contact the Biopark for additional information at 848-7180.

Head to the N4th Theatre for the world premiere of “Persephone!” This modern musical adaptation on the classic Greek myth is presented by the Ka-HOOTZ Theater Company and was written by New Mexico playwright, Mars Mraz. The play runs at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Help raise money and awareness at this year’s annual Climb to Conquer Cancer set up by the American Cancer Society. Climb 6.5 miles the Sandia Crest where food and entertainment will await, then a bus will take you back down. Early registration is encouraged, but you can register starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday at the Sandia Peak Ski area.
