Friday Night Feeding @ Catty Shack Ranch
Catty Shack is an amazing wildlife sanctuary. Hidden in the Northside, they take in lions, tigers, leopards and other creatures.
They invite the public to come watch the Friday night feedings because OMG if you ever thought you were hangry, wait til you see the female tigers get fed. The walking tour and feeding are special because you're UP CLOSE while the caretakers toss in raw meat just feet away from the animals.
Feedings start at 7:30 p.m.

We Rise Music and Arts Festival
Local muralist Nico Holderbaum took her heartbreak of the recent shootings and channeled it into creating a festival to promote peace. This event is free and youth-centric so bring everyone.
Nico is bringing in artists of different forms like poetry, painting, music and dance. People can even contribute to a community mural painting project. This event is meant to strengthen city ties while encouraging expression through art, not violence.
I'm really excited to see Matt Maxey in person. He's brought rap and hip-hop to the deaf community by signing-language interpreting on tour with Chance the Rapper.
The festival is 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at The BrotherHood on A. Philip Randolph downtown.
