The Internet’s love of cats has crossed over into the real world, and Eh? wonders why the Internet loves cats so much anyway, but that can wait for another time. For now, suffice it to say, crazy cat videos are coming to a theater near you.
On Tuesday, Zinema 2 and the Duluth Art Institute will be screening … wait for it … cat videos. That’s not all. In addition to some locally made cat videos, there also will be a screening of “Cat Video Film Festival” from the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, which has been billed as “insanely popular.” Check Friday’s Wave Extra for more details.
For the first time in six years, the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels will scream across Duluth’s skies.
Ryan Kern, president of the Duluth Airshow, announced the Angels will soar Aug. 23-24, 2014, along with more than a dozen other performers, and more performers to be announced in January.
“In 2013, sequestration cancelled most of the airshows around the country and grounded the military demonstration teams. We got official word two weeks ago that their funding has been approved for 2014,” Kern said in a statement.
Advance discounted tickets for the Duluth Airshow are available and can be purchased at duluthairshow.com on Sunday.

The Christmas City of the North Parade is coming Friday, and motorists in downtown Duluth should plan accordingly.
Parade participants will stage on Railroad Street in advance of the event, which is scheduled to begin at 6:20 p.m. They will travel east on Railroad Street to Lake Avenue, cross the freeway on Lake Avenue and then head west on Superior Street to Fifth Avenue West.
There will be no parking allowed along the parade route after 5 p.m. Traffic diversions around the staging area will begin at 2 p.m.
Exits to northbound and southbound Lake Avenue off Interstate 35 will be closed from 5:45-8:30 p.m.
Buses will use First Street.
In short, avoid the area with your car. If you can’t, be patient and “nicicle.”
Eh? loves playing games of all varieties. So, when Eh? learned the Duluth Public Library was participating in International Games Day @ Your Library, we couldn’t keep it a secret.
International Games Day is Saturday. The Duluth Public Library’s main branch, 520 W. Superior St., invites everyone to stop in to play video games, board games or card games.
The Gold Room will be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with games for kids and teens, including Wii U and Nintendo 64. More board and card games will be available at Youth Services, Fiction/Media and Reference & Information desks.
Some of the games include classics such as chess, Clue, checkers, Battleship and cribbage. But, there are some newer games such as Game of Thrones board game, Walking Dead board game, Taboo and Apples to Apples. The library also expects to have some jigsaw puzzles set up on big tables in the library where people can stop by to add a few pieces.
Games will be independent, not staff-organized, so bring friends.
For more information, call the library’s Youth Services desk at (218) 730-4200/option 4, or go to igd.ala.org.
Eh? loves the cold. But more than the cold, it’s what the cold promises: no mosquitoes, a snow scape frosted like a cake, sweaters, hot cocoa after a long day in the snow and fishing from the comfort of a tiny house on a frozen lake.
Aitkin knows all about tiny houses on the lake: They parade them out every year.
The 22nd annual “World Famous Fish House Parade” will dip its line in the water at 1 p.m. Nov. 29.
The grand marshal will be Miss Minnesota, Rebecca Yeh, a 20-year-old from Nisswa. The parade is open to anyone who would like to enter a float with an ice fishing theme.
Other activities include a craft show in the historic Opera House at the Butler Building, Santa and Mrs. Claus will stop by between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. for a special visit, and the United Methodist Church will host a spaghetti feed from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The end of the parade will feature the “Super Discount Ball Drop” where the last float will shoot multicolored balls into the crowd, giving attendees a chance to score different discounts at area businesses.
