1 Target Tuesday: The Glazer Children's Museum is free on Tuesday from 2 to 7 p.m. (It's normally $15 for adults, $9.50 for kids.) In addition to its usual hands-on activities, this summer the museum is teaching kids about famous cities and national landmarks in a display called Road Trip U.S.A. The Glazer Children's Museum is at 110 W Gasparilla Plaza, Tampa. (813) 443-3861.
2 Beach Paw-ty: Grab your flip-flops and put your dog on a leash for this free party on Madeira Beach with live music, a food truck rally, beer garden, contests for humans and dogs, animal-friendly vendors and family activities. It runs 5 to 10 p.m. Friday at 15004 Madeira Way on the beach.
3 Water Ski Show: Every week skiers ages 6-60 give a free show of their barefoot, jump, ballet, adagio and pyramid acts. But this week there will be an all-day Regional Ski Show Tournament with the home team performing what they call an "Unsinkables" theme. Cheer them on from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at Tower Lake, 130 Burbank Road, Oldsmar.
4 Miniature Extravaganza: Sometimes it's good to think small. The St. Petersburg Woman's Club will host a display of miniatures from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday that includes a Lego town with a running train and doll house mansion. The $3 entry benefits the Historical Building Preservation Fund; 12 and younger free. The club is at 40 Snell Isle Blvd. NE, St. Petersburg. (727) 823-9258.
5 Family Campfire Night: The nature lovers at the Pinellas Pioneer Settlement aim to make it easy by giving you the best part of camping — cooking over the fire, campfire stories — while leaving out the cumbersome tent set up and sleeping on the ground. It runs 6 to 8 p.m. Friday and hot dogs and beans are included at the rustic slice of country in the middle of the city at 3120 31st St. S, St. Petersburg. They will even cook some hot dogs and beans for you. Call to reserve a spot at (727) 893-7326. $5.
