This weekend is colorful, artsy and purely entertaining -- and we're not just talking about PrideFest; life-sized board games, drag queens, mud and medieval merrymaking take over our fair city.

Marvelous Mud: Get your hands dirty at Denver Art Museum's newest exhibit Marvelous Mud: Clay Through the Ages. In addition to magnificent pieces throughout the entire museum, you'll find a hands-on studio in the Hamilton Building where kids and adults alike can model clay and give a pottery wheel a try.

It's All Greek To Me: We know you've always been curious about that huge gold dome off Alameda -- now's your chance to get up close and take a peek inside at this weekend's annual Greek Festival. Hellenic, Cretan and Greek folk dancers will keep you entertained while you sample Ouzo and OD on the city's best gyros and saganaki.
