Kick off the weekend with a clash on the ice as the Carolina Hurricanes take on the Arizona Coyotes Friday at 7 p.m. Fans can find themselves crammed into the cozy confines of Mullett Arena in Tempe, with standing-room tickets starting at a steep $60. You can catch the puck drop live on Arizona 61, as confirmed by ABC15.

If sports aren't your scene, mosey on over to the Westworld of Scottsdale for the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show, trotting through town until February 24. Entry fees begin at a manageable $15 per ticket, according to details from ABC15. And for those seeking a cultural kick, Phoenix Art Museum's Barbie: A Cultural Icon Exhibition runs through July 7, with patrons shelling out $28 for museum admission.

Aviation aficionados can glide to the Buckeye Air Fair this weekend, featuring sky-high fun with free entry and only a $10 parking fee. For the cocktail connoisseurs, the Arizona Cocktail Weekend promises a spirited time downtown, spanning February 16-19, though you'll have to click for tickets, as per the advice from ABC15's coverage.

But there's more in store. The Arizona Renaissance Festival, a cornucopia of costumes and crafts, is wowing crowds at Gold Canyon through March 31. "You're going to step into a world like you've never experienced before," Florian from The Renaissance Men told ABC15. Fair-goers will be treated to original acts such as Supernova the Strongwoman and The Reelin' Rogues. There's also the debut of "The Hops," a bawdy pub crawl that requires tickets to be snapped up in advance online.

Tickets to the Renaissance magic are $34 for adults and $22 for kids from 5-12, with the tiny tots under 4 entering for free.
