Things to do in Phoenix: 16 events this weekend around the Valley

Enjoy the weekend, Phoenix.

Ventriloquist Jeff Dunham will stop by the US Airways Center on Friday. If you haven't seen his act or movies before, it's a hilarious show that will certainly keep you entertained. And Dunham's ability to switch between characters and voices is pretty remarkable, too.

The Philadelphia Soul take on the Arizona Rattlers this weekend. Never been to an arena football game? They're quite an experience!

Phoenix's St. Patrick's Day Parade and faire takes place this weekend, ahead of the holiday. View our list of St. Patrick's Day events happening around the Valley.
