Weekend Events in Tuscaloosa

Bookin’ It for TCS Libraries 5k 📚 🏃

This weekend, there is a great way to give back to the Tuscaloosa community. The Bookin’ It for TCS Libraries 5k is designed to fund Tuscaloosa City Schools’ libraries. On average, TCS library books are nearly 20 years old, and are in need of an update to their collections to best serve students. The race will be held Saturday at 8 a.m., and will start at The Alberta School of Performing Arts. Participants are encouraged to dress like their favorite book character for the race. Find all of the details and purchase tickets here.

Commoners Masquerade Ball 👑

Saturday will be a night of live big band music, dancing, food, and fun to benefit UCPWA. This Mardi Gras Celebration encourages attendees to wear costumes or masks and dress in purple, green, and gold. Of course, the more colorful beads the better. A king and queen from the UCP Krew of Commoners will be crowned! The event will be held on Saturday, March 2 from 7-11 p.m. at the Hotel Capstone.
