Treasure this

The Truffle Shuffle will be on full display during the Glade Park Movies Under the Stars showing of cult classic movie “The Goonies” at dusk on Glade Park at 16400 DS Road.

The concession stand opens at 5:30 p.m. and the grill at 6:30 p.m. Landslide will provide the pre-movie entertainment.

Don’t forget your chairs or warm clothes. Glade Park is a bit cooler at night than Grand Junction.

Free tix

Before you go enjoy the bluegrass sounds of the Emmitt-Nershi Band in concert, you’ll have to get your free tickets at 8 a.m. at either Gene Taylor’s Sporting Goods in Grand Junction or Over the Edge Sports in Fruita.

The concert, although free, requires tickets. It is set for Aug. 6, and is the final concert in the Colorado Riverfront Concert Series.

Designer dish

Season 10 of the hit reality competition “Project Runway” begins at 8 p.m. on Lifetime.

Judges Michael Kors and Nina Garcia will join Heidi Klum again this season, but who knows what crazy challenges they’ll give designers this time.
