Best Bets

1. Bring the family to a "wrap session" this weekend at Artpark in Lewiston.

From noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, experience the colorful world of Bulgarian-born Christo during this summer's first Family Weekend.

Craft your own Christo-like creations, and then take a stab at "Artist Trading Cards," "Franken Bolts" and "Secret Spangles."

For more information, visit www.artpark.net.

2. Quick! Name the largest group of living creatures on Earth.

Bugs! Starting Friday at the Buffalo Museum of Science, celebrate all that crawls, flies and annoys during the new "Bug Bash." Exhibits include "Bug Builders Inc.," "Web Weaving" and "Flea Circus." Take part in "Insect Olympics" to see if you can out-jump a grasshopper.

Hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday. Closed Sunday. Admission: $7 adults, $5 children. The museum is at 1020 Humboldt Parkway.

3. On Saturday, check out a "Super Flea" market from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the heart of Buffalo's East Side. Sponsored by Corpus Christi Church, expect a haul of treasures at bargain prices. Find the goods in the parking lot behind the church -- located at Superman's corner (Clark and Kent streets).

4. Free on Tuesday?

Listen to the best All-American band in town, the American Legion Band of the Tonawandas, Post 264. The summer concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in Bassett Park on Klein and Youngs roads in Amherst. Rain site: Transit Middle School, 8730 Transit Road, East Amherst.
