No matter what your financial situation, it's an exciting weekend for homeowners in Memphis. Those on the brink of losing their house to foreclosure may learn how to save their largest asset at a Foreclosure Assistance Workshop at the Hickory Hill Community Center on Saturday at 9 a.m. HUD-certified counselors will be on hand to share advice.

Others may simply be looking to spruce up their landscaping or remodel their old home. If that's the case, don't miss the annual Vesta Home Expo at the Agricenter this weekend. Explore over 300 booths with info on the latest remodeling technology. The event runs Friday through Sunday.

Get out of the house Saturday night and take a trip to Ireland. Or at least the next best thing -- the Celtic Crossroads performance at the Bartlett Performing Arts and Conference Center. The Irish ensemble plays traditional Emerald Isle tunes on 20 different instruments, including something called the bouzouki. The show begins at 8 p.m.

Pit bulls get a bad rep, but the muscular working dogs are typically sweet, cuddly animals when mean ole' dog fighters aren't involved in their upbringing. Pit bull owners and their pups will gather at Tom Lee Park on Saturday morning for the Pit Bull Bark in the Park, a dog walk to raise awareness of the pit's positive side. The walk begins at 10 a.m.

In the 2001 movie Legally Blonde, valley girl Elle Woods (played by Reese Witherspoon) enrolls in Harvard Law School in the hopes of convincing her ex that she has looks and brains. It was a cute movie, but it works even better as a Broadway musical -- complete with songs like "Omigod, You Guys" (that one will be stuck in your head for days, we promise). Don't miss the traveling show at the Orpheum. It runs through Sunday.
