Your outdoor activities this weekend may have to change on Sunday, when rain chances are expected to increase to 50 percent in the afternoon. Before that, however, sunny skies and comfortable temperatures should be the order of the day.
Here are some highlighted events to consider:

Mainstage Theatre’s latest offering brings an elaborate set, a throwback to the past and big performances.
“Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean” runs 7:30 p.m. tonight, with encore performances planned for next weekend at the theater, 124 W. Ninth St.
Under the direction of Eddie Franklin, “Jimmy Dean” is its own rebel as it explores femininity, relationships, sexuality, morality and what it means to be a woman.
